A Telugu film getting remade in Kannada is very common. In fact most of the hit Telugu films are remade sooner or later as dubbing isn’t allowed in Kannada film industry. But very rarely do we see a flop film get remade in other language. Maaya, the ESP thriller which released this Friday to mixed response and poor houses is an example of such an exception.
Producer of the film Madhura Sreedhar Reddy has confirmed that the film is going to be remade in Kannada soon. The remake rights have been bought by Sridhar Reddy and Murugappan of Dhalakshmi Printers. They have in the past taken the remake rights of Prema Katha Chithram as well. Maaya was directed by Neelakanth and it contained an interesting thriller element as its main content. It’s been made at low budget so these remake rights would surely provide some respite for the makers for sure.
In the past something similar was seen with Andhrawala remake in Kannada. As we all know how big a disaster was that film in Telugu but in Kannada the film turned out to be a successful venture for the makers. It was directed by none other than our Meher Ramesh. Will we see something similar happen with Maaya remake?
