Victory Venkatesh is one actor from Telugu Cinema, who is keen on doing as many remakes as he can. He feels they are safe bets and his major hits in 90’s and in recent times have also been remakes. His Chanti, Sarada Bullodu, Intlo Illalu Vantitlo Priyuralu, Sooryavamsham, Raja, Vasantham, Pelli Chesukundam are remakes of popular Tamil, Malayalam and Hindi films.
Post Nuvvu Naku Nacchav and Malliswari, he scored hits with Sankranthi, a remake and after Lakshmi, he got a hit only with Drushyam and Guru which are also remakes. Seethamma Vakitlo Srimalle Chettu and Gopala Gopala released for Sankranthi with Mahesh Babu and Pawan Kalyan in the cast. Even Gopala Gopala is the remake of Hindi hit, Oh My God! Now, he is acting in a straight script from Teja and also in talks with Anil Ravipudi and Kalyan Krishna for straight films.
In between these films, he may do one more remake. This time from Malayalam Cinema with Mammotty as the hero. Mammotty’s Great Father released to a great reception and the star hero of Malayalam scored a blockbuster with the movie after two years. Venkatesh liked the character of a father, who plots revenge for his daughter who has raped brutally. The talks are still on and the producer and director has to be set for the movie to go on floors. If Suresh Productions, find a good director who can adapt the script well, then the movie could go on floors along with DE, as per the reports! Official confirmation and announcement are awaited regarding this information.
