There was news from Mumbai that this Tamil hit film is being directed by Gowtham Menon in Hindi and John Abraham will be doing the role which Surya did in the Tamil version.

When asked Gowtham Menon about this, he said,” Hindi film producer Vipul Shaw had asked me to direct a film for him. I don’t know whether that film was Kaaka Kaakha. It is yet to be confirmed.”
When asked Kalaipuli Dhanu who produced Kaakha Kaakha about this, he said,” Many from Bollywood have approached me for the remake rights. Even Gowtham Menon requested me. I have planned to produce this film in Hindi. I have not given remake rights to anyone.”
