Mahesh Babu is riding high on the success of Dookudu which has broken the box office records and has been declared as a smash hit. With this film turning out to be a hit, there is a stiff competition to remake it in Tamil.
Dookudu’s hero Mahesh Babu is reported to prefer Vijay for this remake. The star apparently had spoken to Vijay and had pointed out that he would be more suitable for the Tamil version. Vijay is also said to be contemplating on this remake because his earlier remakes like Pokkiri and Ghilli were a hit.
