Ajay Devgan In Kaithi Remake Called Bhola

Karthi,  the  younger  brother  of  Suriya  , is  a  major star  in  Tamil cinema.  He has been looking  out for  a breakthrough  project in Hindi for a very long time.

Karthi hoped that his  2019  Tamil hit Kaithi would be the  ideal project to introduce  him to  a Hindi audience.  But it is  now confirmed  that Ajay Devgan , not Karthi is  playing the lead  in the Hindi remake   of  Kaithi entitled Bholaa.

Reliance Entertainment  had  announced a  Hindi version  of   the Tamil  blockbuster Kaithi  in 2019.   The  story  of  a convict on the way to meet his daughter was  touted  as  a one-man show  for its hero Karthi.Sources say, Karthi who would be the best option for the remake ,was ruled  out.

“Karthi doesn’t have a market in the Hindi belt.Like it or not, South Indian  superstars are mostly restricted in their  viewership to their  home base. Karthi would be the natural choice in Hindi. But he won’t bring  in  the audience. His elder brother Suriya made an attempt to  get into Hindi cinema with Ram Gopal Varma’s Rakht Charitra.But  he failed,” says a source close to the  project

Better the  king of  the  jungle than  a  fringe player  in  the derivative  domain.Director  Lokesh Kanagaraj who  directed the original has been    retained  for  the remake.
