Venkatesh to do a hat-trick of remakes?

Venkatesh who is currently busy with Drushyam 2 and Narappa might just star in another remake. Buzz is that he might star in the remake of the 2019 Malayalam superhit Driving License. The Malayalam comedy-drama starred Prithviraj and Suraj in the lead roles.

The Malayalam comedy film follows the dynamics between a motor vehicle inspector and an actor. The inspector happens to be a huge fan of the actor who needs the license on an urgent basis. What follows next is how the lives of both men get affected. The Malayalam film ended up as one of the biggest blockbusters of Mollywood in 2019.

Meanwhile Venkatesh has just finished his portion for Drushyam 2 in record time. The film was scheduled for a release in June-July. However, producer Suresh Babu has also received great offers for a direct OTT release and nothing has been decided yet.

Another remake that Venkatesh is working on is Narappa. A remake of Dhanush starrer Asuran, the movie was scheduled to release on 14th May. However, with the ongoing second wave of Covid, the film’s release has been indefinitely postponed.

The discussions on Driving License are still going on and nothing has been finalised yet.
