Wonder why we're talking about a film that released in 2011?

Well, there is a reason! Yes! According to latest exciting updates, Dookudu is all set to be remade in Hindi and the talks have been initiated with leading Superstars of Hindi cinema. According to a report from Bollywood Hungama, the remake rights has been acquired by Eros International (Producer of Rajinikanth's Kochadaiiyaan) who is back to business after a hiatus. The director's name has not yet been revealed, but it is said that a well known director has been signed onboard to helm the remake. Currently, the makers are said to be busy in making changes to the script to make it suitable for the Hindi audience.

A few years before, there were plans to remake the film with Salman Khan and Ajay Devgn, but the project didn't materialize for various reasons. However, with the current developments, it looks like we can expect some good news very soon. Mahesh Babu's fans have been delighted by this new update. An official announcement on the project is yet to be made.
