Now things seem to be taking a different turn,
Pyramid Saimira the acquisition giant has now
bagged the rights of Rajkumar Santoshi’s
Halla Bol which stars Ajay Devgan and Vidya Balan
in the lead. This film is loosely based on the
rise of a small town youth to superstardom and
how an incident in his life makes him come to
terms with his true self, which was lost in its
climb to stardom.
Pyramid Saimira have acquired the remake rights
to this movie and talks are abound that Rajini
would be apt for the role played by Ajay Devgan.
Pyramid is in fact in talks with Rajini to star
in this movie. The film’s financial advisor
Sanjay Bhandari said “Pyramid Saimira is
our business partner and they had expressed their
desire to remake this movie in Tamil and have
approached Rajini to play the lead.” Rajkumar
Santoshi was earlier in talks with Rajini to play
the role of Ravana in his next venture Ramayana,
his magnum opus touted to be the most expensive
Indian film ever made, which Rajini eventually
turned down and Prakash Raj was offered the role.
Let us hope that this one ends up being true but
to guess whether Rajini would act in a role essayed
by Ajay Devgan with negative shades and that too
much after this well publicized venture hits the
screens is a tall order in itself.
