70% Changes to Theri Telugu Remake

Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja’s Nela Ticket is releasing this Friday and there is another film, Amar Akbar Anthony which is being canned in the United States. On the other side, Ravi Teja will be working with Rabhasa fame Santosh Srinivas for a new project. It is going to be the Telugu remake of Thalapathy Vijay’s Blockbuster film Theri. Ravi Teja has confirmed this in an interview and said, “I am doing the remake of Vijay’s Theri and we have nicely set the film according to Telugu nativity. Close to 70% of the film has been changed and it will look completely new. Even my role will have new variation”.

Interestingly, Theri was dubbed into Telugu as Policeodu and was released as well. But the film did not work at the box office and the makers seem to be trying to take advantage of it by making some major changes to the script. Catherine Tresa is in talks to replace the role of Amy Jackson from the Original. Santosh Srinivas was to direct a film with Pawan Kalyan but that did not happen since the Power Star has stopped doing films until 2019 elections. His last film, Hyper with Ram is a big disaster.
