Samuthirakani, who is fresh from the success of ‘Naadodigal’, is currently busy with the Telugu remake of the movie. Titled ‘Sambo Siva Sambo’, the film has Ravi Teja in the lead role. After completing the Telugu version, he would direct the same script in Kannada.
Besides, the filmmaker has penned a historical script, for which he feels either Vijay or Suriya would fit the bill. “It is a period film without any compromise on commercial elements. I would soon meet Vijay and Suriya to discuss the script,” he says.
Claiming that the movie could be made on a ‘mega budget’ alone, Samuthirakani says it would take at least two years to complete the project. “Let us see how things are going to get shape,” he says.
He also throws light on two more future projects of him. “I would act in a film to be directed by Sasikumar and he would once again act in my directorial venture. I may also pen script to a television serial soon.
