Salman Khan's decision to turn towards regional cinema for ideas is paying off in rich dividends. His Ready opposite Asin which was the remake of a Telugu film with Genelia and Ram (It was remade in Tamil also as Uthamaputhiran with Dhanush and Genelia) is running to packed houses and smashing all kinds of box office records. The actor is keen to maintain this trend and is also remaking Kaavalan and telugu film Kick (Thillalangadi in Tamil).
Some years ago, when Salman's career was going through a low phase, he decided to remake Sethu in Hindi with Bhumika Chawla. This move turned the tide in his favor and there has been no looking back for the Bollywood superstar. And so his love affair with regional cinema continues to this day.
Salman has evinced a keen interest in Raghava Lawrence's Kanchana. This film is supposed to be a sequel to Muni and Lawrence in confident, the film will do well.
