Vijay starrer Theri was a superhit film. Mythri Movie Makers had announced that this film would be remade in Tollywood with Ravi Teja essaying Vijay's role. Also director Santhosh Srinivas was to director it.
But the film has been dropped now. MMM had brought the rights of the film three years ago. Initially they had plans to make the film with Pawan Kalyan as its leading man. But this plan was shelved as Pawan Kalyan got busy in politics.
Later Ravi Teja was roped in to essay this role. Now the makers have realized that this film might not work with the Telugu audience. Hence they have decided to drop the film for good.
