Paiya, the pot of gold for Bollywood
Gajini, Ready, Bodyguard, Singham, Wanted… films that have been south remakes have created Bollywood history that can never be repeated as superhits for stars like Aamir Khan, Salman Khan and Ajay Devgan. Even currently, the trend is in full flow with Kick that stars Salman Khan, and Maryada Ramanna is Son of Sardar that stars Ajay Devgan being talked about already.
But there is one film that seems to have been missed by Bollywood stars. And that is Paiya, another potential pot of gold for Bollywood with love from the South. The reason the film seems to not be taken so far is because director Linguswamy was waiting for Surya to play the lead in the Hindi version. However, since Surya is still neck-deep with his Tamil assignments (Singham, Gajini are but a few of his earlier film remakes), Linguswamy has moved on to do four Tamil films with UTV.
So who will be the star who will grab Paiya the superhit that grossed over 50 crore business in Tamil with 20 crore overseas and over 20 crore for its Telugu version Awaara?
Watch this space for the answer…
