Prakash Raj to Direct a Hindi Film

Actor Prakash Raj is all set to direct a Hindi film soon. The actor, who turned director with the 2010 Kannada film Naanu Nanna Kanasu, also helmed Dhoni in 2012 and Un Samayal Araiyil in 2014. Now, he plans to remake Un Samyal Araiyil in Hindi as well as Bengali, according to a report in Vikatan.


Un Samayal Araiyil was a remake of Salt N Pepper, a 2011 Malayalam hit film. The film starred Prakash Raj and Sneha in the lead roles, with Ilaiyaraaja composing the music. Un Samayal Araiyil, and its Telugu version, Ulavacharu Biriyani, received lukewarm response from the audience. However, Oggarane, the Kannada version, became the runaway success of the year.

Reports also suggest that Prakash Raj will not be reprising his role in the film, but plans to rope in Nana Patekar for the same.

Prakash Raj is currently acting in Thoongavanam and will also be seen in the Rajini-Ranjith untitled film, and the Tamil remake of Jolly LLB.
