The much-awaited film of Upendra, I Love You, released amidst much fanfare on June 14. The film was panned by critics and the film was a flop in Kannada as well as Telugu dubbed version. Now there are reports that the film is getting remade in Tamil by the same director R. Chandru.
Speaking to a leading daily, R. Chandru said, “I am on board to direct the Tamil remake of I Love You, but I have not finalized the cast. The production house has given me the option to go ahead with actors like Vijay Sethupati or Karthi. I am leaning towards the latter, but will decide in a couple of weeks.”
Karthi is already going through a tough phase with his last film ‘Dev’ being an ultra disaster. It would be suicidal for his career to act in a film that has not done critically or commercially well. Let us wait and see what decision does Karthi takes!
