The South influx into Bollywood has gathered momentum. After Dhanush's successful Hindi debut in Aanand Rai's Raanjhanaa and Ramcharan's Zanjeer that opens in September, it would be the turn of Ramcharan's nearest rival in Hyderabad, Ravi Teja.
Ravi Teja would debut in a double role in Samir Karnik's Kaur & Singh. The film would be an action-comedy (Ravi Teja's forte) in Hindi and Telugu. The Telugu version of the film would be entitled Laxmi Reddy.
Confirming these developments, director Samir Karnik says, "Ravi has done a very successful double role in Vikramarkudu, the Telugu version of Rowdy Rathore. We wanted to take his image to another level."
While Karnik refuses to reveal any more, we gather that Ravi Teja plays two brothers in Kaur & Singh. One of them is a con-man who constantly gets the good brother into trouble.
Says Karnik, "I promise you, Ravi Teja will be a riot in my film."
