Siva Karthikeyan to play lead in Ala Vaikunthapurramloo Tamil remake?
As we have previously reported that Allu Arjun and Pooja Hegde’s blockbuster Ala Vaikunthapurramloo will be made in the Tamil language as well, we have come up with an interesting update. According to the latest report, the role of Allu Arjun will be portrayed by Siva Karthikeyan in the Tamil version of Ala Vaikunthapurramloo.
Yes, you read that right, Siva Karthikeyan has been finalised to play the lead in Tamil version of Ala Vaikunthapurramloo. The original version was directed by Trivikram Srinivas.
According to our sources, Siva Karthikeyan is yet to give his nods to play the lead in Ala Vaikunthapurramloo. However, there has been no official announcement regarding the same. But the sources suggest that the makers and Siva will soon make an official announcement of Tamil remake of Ala Vaikunthapurramloo.
There have been reports doing rounds on social media that the leading production banner of Hindi film industry was also interested to buy Ala Vaikunthapurramloo’s Hindi rights. If anything to go by the report, the Mega producer Allu Aravind and S Radha Krishna decided to not sell the Hindi remake rights of the Trivikram Srinivas directorial venture, as they are planning to remake it on their own.
It is to be noted that Ala Vaikunthapurramloo was Allu Arjun and Trivikram Srinivas’s second film together after Julayi and S/O Sathyamurthy. The duo is all set to team up again for their next titled Pushpa.
As per the reports, Vijay Sethupathi, who was supposed to play a crucial role in Pushpa, has walked out of the film citing date issues. The role of an antagonist in Pushpa is most likely to be essayed by Bollywood actor Suniel Shetty.
