A report in a section of the press claims Telugu star Naveen Pollishetty met producer Sajid Nadiadwala with the offer to remake his superhit comedy Jathi Ratnalu. The report goes on to claim that Sajid declined the offer claiming that the comedy was too regional in flavor to be translocated to a Hindi- North Indian audience.
When I reached out to Naveen Pollishetty he dismissed the report as , “Fake news”
A source close to the project added, “Naveen has not met Nadiadwala after Chhichhore was completed. He has not approached Nadiadwala with any offer to remake Jathi Ratnalu in Hindi.Naveen has been travelling in the US promoting the film which has broken all previous records of Telugu cinema at the US boxoffice.”
The source also adds that remake negotiations aren’t Naveen’s call. “Why would he offer Sajid Nadiadwala the remake rights? Naveen is not the producer of Jathi Ratnalu. The producers have no intention of doing a Hindi version of Jathi Ratnalu. The Telugu version has reached out to audiences all across India and the world. Why would they remake Jathi Ratnalu?”
