It’s an open secret that Boney Kapoor's Salman Khan and Ayesha Takia starrer, WANTED (working title) is an official remake of the South blockbuster, POKKIRI. But what people do not know is that the movie is not just a Hindi carbon copy of the original.

As per the producer Boney Kapoor, WANTED is not a frame-to-frame adaptation of POKKIRI. He elaborated further by disclosing that in the original, the hero plays a 'tapori' whereas in the remake he is shown to be slightly well-off. And therefore Salman's hangout is not a roadside tea-shack ('dhaba') as in the South version, and he is even seen discussing business in a bowling alley!

We do sincerely hope that these changes make the movie even more identifiable with the audience and Salman proves lucky for Boney once again after their superhit, NO ENTRY, which saw Boney Kapoor laughing all the way to the bank.
