Ranveer Singh's SIMMBA now a Tamil film too
Looks Like Ranveer Singh has competition. His big cops-action film SIMMBA, which is a remake of the Telugu hit TEMPER, already has a Tamil version for competition.
Vishal Krishna, basking in the huge success of his Tamil/Telugu cyber thriller IRUMBU THIRAI, has bought the Tamil remake rights of Puri Jagannath's Telugu hit TEMPER, which featured N T Rama Rao Junior as a hot-headed corrupt cop who befriends a gang lord.
Interestingly the same film is being remade in Hindi as SIMMBA with Ranveer Singh playing the cop. Rohit Shetty directs the film in Hindi, produced by Karan Johar.
Vishal Krishna remaining unfazed by the competition said, "I wanted to remake TEMPER into Tamil as it deals with the theme of child rape. I feel it's very important for actors to use their audiences' support to raise issues through and beyond entertainment," he said.
Vishal's film, to be directed by IRUMBU THIRAI director P S Mithran, will undergo many changes in the transition.
"We are looking at an entirely different interpretation of the story. Our Tamil version of TEMPER would be completely different from the original," he said.
