Satish Kaushik who successfully remade Bala’s ‘Sethu’, as ‘Tere Naam’ starring the B-town hot favourite Salman Khan, now is ready to remake another Tamil blockbuster.

The filmmaker has taken the copyrights of the movie ‘Pithamagan’ which was also directed by Bala. This Vikram and Surya starrer Tamil flick was a big hit down south and Kaushik is very excited about taking the copyrights for the same.

Says Satish, “I had seen Pithamagan at the big screen in 2003. I was moved by the story and especially the character played by Vikram. Ever since then I have wanted to remake it and now I finally can!”

Bollywood heavyweight producers Boney and Vashu along with Sanjay Dutt where also keen for the remake but Satish grabbed the deal beating all.

‘Pithamagan’ has been a hot property for Bollywood since its release because of the strong storyline. Vikram had won a National Award for this movie and Surya became a blockbuster star after this movie.

If sources are to be believed, Kaushik wants to either cast actor Saif Ali Khan or Hrithik Roshan for the character Vikram played in the Tamil version.

Stay tuned for more on this….
