Amala Paul is a potential interstate peacemaker.
The Cauvery river tangle has make sure that Karnataka and Tamil Nadu do not bond very well. Yet cinema makes it possible for these two rival states to occasionally come together and bridge the gap. The Dhanush hit Velai Illa Pattadhari or VIP was a huge hit in Kollywood and even though Kannada cinema has a rule against remakes they have decided to go ahead and make a Kannada version of it because of its story line. Many felt the story would resonate in Karnataka too. Amala Paul who played the role of Shalini in the original will do it in Kannada too. The Kannada superstar Ravichandran’s son Manoranjan Ravichandran will play Dhanush’s role. The producer Rockline Venkatesh is a man who is well known to both industries. He said we are making it though we are yet to finalize the entire cast and details for the project. Rockline Venkatesh said once everything is in place the project will commence. Staying with the Kannada film industry Amala has also another movie on the anvil called Hebbuli. She is cast opposite Sudeep in this film in Kannada.
