Mumbai: Remember Venkatesh? The Telugu actor, who had romanced Bollywood beauty Karisma Kapoor in the 1994 super hit film `Anari` is all set to do a Salman Khan in his upcoming flick.
Yes, the Telugu superstar has made up his mind to remake Salman ‘Dabangg’ Khan’s 2011 Eid blockbuster flick ‘Bodyguard’. And he is confident that his version of the film will do well at the Box Office.
The south Indian actor is all praise for Salman.
Talking to a daily, he said, “I have seen the Hindi film and I think Salman has done a fantastic job.”
Southern hottie Trisha will play Kareena Kapoor’s part in the Telegu remake.
Salman’s ‘Bodyguard’ garnered rave reviews across the country and even in Andhra Pradesh. But Venky is pretty sure his version of the film will be equally successful in his territory.
He said, “I doubt the success of Salman’s ‘Bodyguard’ will affect the prospects of the Telugu remake at the BO. Though we have taken the basic concept from the original movie in Malayalam, we have incorporated a lot of changes into the script to suit the sensibilities of the Telugu movie audience.”
