Ranveer Singh and director S Shankar have recently announced a collaboration for the remake of ‘Anniyan’, the 2005 Tamil blockbuster that explored the concept of multiple personalities. The remake of this movie is set to go on floors mid-2022 and will star the duo. Shankar is known for his unique style of directing and is considered to be one of India’s most innovative filmmakers.
Despite being a young star, Ranveer Singh has already starred in numerous films. He is also a true energy ball, who has already made his mark in Bollywood. In fact, Shankar has a lot of plans for the actor, and he has teamed up with him to direct the biggest pan-Indian film since Bahubali. This epic, based on the Tamil novel Velpari, will be a landmark for action spectacles.
The film is a multi-language three-part epic, with a humongous budget. Shankar has already devised the screenplay for the three-part film and plans to begin filming the first part by 2023. It will be the biggest film in Shankar’s illustrious career.
Before the Velpari adaptation, Shankar is working on Indian 2 with Kamal Haasan. After this film releases, he will be working on the Velpari adaptation. ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’ is another project that has Ranveer on board.
Despite the successful film’s box office success, Shankar is currently embroiled in a legal battle with Lyca Productions over Indian 2. The film’s production company, Lyca, was at odds with Shankar, and shooting was halted. Lyca Productions has filed a petition asking Shankar to complete Indian 2 before moving onto other projects. However, Shankar has countered the lawsuit, saying that he is not responsible for the delays in the film.
Ram Charan’s RC 15 is expected to be a political thriller and the actor will be starring in the movie with Anjali and Jayaram. It will also be the actor’s second pan-India film. The movie will also mark the director’s debut collaboration with Ram Charan. Besides, RC 15 marks the 50th film of Dil Raju’s production house.
Shankar has been working on the remake of ‘Anniyan’ for a while, but Ranveer has locked down the role of Anniyan. He wants to take the film to the next level, and has been working with his team on the script. The film is set to hit the big screen in April, and Shankar wants to make it as pan-India as possible.
Although the film’s shooting has already begun, there have been numerous setbacks for the project. Despite the many challenges, the project is expected to take the box office by storm. The movie has many high-profile stars, including Amy Jackson and Akshay Kumar. Director Shankar’s mother passed away due to age-related ailments in the past few months.
Vijay’s Master is also in the works, with the remake set to hit the theatres in the winter of 2021. The film’s censorship report was published on 4 August 2021, according to the Sify website.
