Actor-director Prakash Raj has purchased the Tamil and Telugu remake rights of the recent Kannada film Godhi Banna Sadharana Mykattu. Directed by debutante Hemanth Rao, the film stars Anant Nag and Rakshit Shetty, and has been positively received by both audiences and critics. Prakash Raj told the Times of India, “I’ve always brought good films here (Karnataka) and now I am proud to take this film outside. This film deserves to cross borders and be told in other languages.” Prakash Raj had earlier remade the Malayalam film Salt And Pepper into Tamil, Kannada, and Telugu.
Godhi Banna Sadharana Mykattu (Wheatish Complexion; Average Build) is about an Alzheimer’s patient (Anant Nag) who goes missing, and his son (Rakshit Shetty)’s attempt to find him. Of late, many Kannada films are being remade in Tamil. Lucia was remade as Enakkul Oruvan, and now Rakshit Shetty’s directorial Ulidavaru Kandanthe is being remade with Nivin Pauly in the lead. U Turn by Pawan Kumar has also joined the list of Kannada films that will be remade in Tamil.
Details on the cast and crew of Prakash Raj’s project haven’t yet been announced.
