Ram Charan took a short break after suffering a huge failure in the form of Bruce Lee. He would have taken it lightly had the movie been an experiment.
Bruce Lee was an out and out entertainer and also had the cameo of Megastar in it. Despite having all the attractions the movie tanked at the box office leaving Charan in doldrums.
He had to do some retrospection after that failure and also gave a second thought about the projects he was already committed to.
There were rumors that Charan would drop remaking Thani Oruvan as many believe that it is not a right project for him. However Charan decided to do the remake of Thani Oruvan as his next.
Surender Reddy will be directing the movie and Aravind Swamy will play the villain. Shruti Haasan is roped in as the female lead. Hiphop Thamiza who has scored brilliant music for the original is signed up for the Telugu remake as well. Aseem Mishra of Bajrangi Bhaijaan fame will be handling the camera.
This movie will start rolling shortly and will be ready for release by next June/July.
