Satish Kaushik, filmmaker from Bollywood has remade various Tamil films in Hindi including, ‘Sethu’, ‘Piriyamanavale’ and few more. It’s worth mentioning that he had remade Rishi Kapoor’s ‘Karzzzz’ and that was a terrible flop.
He has now acquired the remake rights of Bala’s ‘Pithamaghan’ that fetched astounding laurels on many panoramas. It has been confirmed that Satish Kaushik himself will produce and direct the remake version with Sanjay Dutt enacting the lead role of ‘Vikram’ while it may be Ajay Devgn or Shahid Kapoor donning the Surya’s role. Talks are going with Lara Dutta and Genelia D’ Souza to play the female lead role.
When approached Satish Kaushik, he has mentioned that nothing has been officially confirmed about any star-casts and will be done shortly.
