Thalapathy Vijay's Theri was a big hit at the box office that marked the first time collaboration of director Atlee with Vijay. The duo has now come a long way that has lead them to join for the third time through Thalapathy 63.
Meanwhile, the Telugu remake of Theri has been officially launched and is all set to go on floors. Telugu star, Ravi Teja will play the lead role, reprising Vijay's character, while Catherine Tresa will play one of the female leads. She is expected to do the role played by Samantha in the original.
This remake will be directed by Santosh Srinivas of Kandireega fame. The film was announced long ago, but it didn't take off as planned and due to that, people started to believe that the film is shelved. However, the makers have clarified that the remake plans are very much on and that the shooting will start from April 15. Ravi Teja will shoot simultaneously for his another film, Disco Raja. This untitled Theri remake has been planned to release for Dussehra 2019.
More details regarding this project are awaited. Ravi Teja has not had a successful outing with his previous ventures such as Amar Akbar Antony, Nela Ticket, Touch Chesi Chudu, turning out to be a disappointment. He might look forward to hit the right chords with the remake of Theri.
