Megastar Chiranjeevi has scored a very good hit in the form of 'Waltair Veerayya'. This mass entertainer which came out during the Sankranti season has already crossed the 100 crores mark and even touched the $2 million mark in the overseas. Whilst the fans are over the moon with the movie's success and enjoying it euphorically, the news about his next projects are worrying him.

After his comeback, Megastar did four films and two of them were remakes. His 150th film was a remake of Tamil super hit movie 'Kaththi' while his 'Godfather' was a remake of Malayalam blockbuster 'Lucifer'. While scored a hit with an original film like 'Waltair Veerayya', his next film is a remake once again.

As we know, he is remaking Ajith's successful mass flick 'Vedhalam' as 'Bholaa Shankar'. While the remake itself is making the fans unhappy, it is being directed by Meher Ramesh whose track record is giving sleepless nights to his fans. Tamannaah is the heroine while Keerthy Suresh will be seen as Chiru's sister. Mahati Swara Sagar is the music composer while Anil Sunkara is the producer for this flick.

On top of 'Bholaa Shankar', there is a talk going on in the industry that Megastar is showing interest in remaking another Ajith movie. This time it is 'Vishwasam' which is dubbed in Telugu as well. If reports have anything to go by, it will be directed by VV Vinayak and it will be the third remake in their combination after 'Tagore' and 'Khaidi No 150'. 'VIshwasam' has Ajith and Nayanthara playing the lead while Jagapathi Babu is seen as the villain. The story looks a bit inspired by the Telugu film 'Thulasi' and we need to see if Chiru really remakes this movie or if this whole news ends up as a mere rumor.
