A few weeks ago, there were reports that actor Dhanush was keen to remake Rajinikanth’s yesteryear blockbuster, Netrikann, which released in 1981.
However, recently, the writer of the film, Visu took to his social media page to say that Dhanush should also seek permission from him, because he had penned the story for the original. “It’s indeed true that Netrikann remake is on the cards. Neither Dhanush nor Kavithalaya has offered to give me any compensation,” Visu said. Immediately, Kavithalaya came up with the statement that they are the absolute owner of all the copyrights related to the film.
Now, we hear that, on Tuesday, Dhanush had apparently called Visu and spoke to him for over half an hour regarding the issue. He also revealed to him that he has no plans to star in the remake of Netrikann. The actor is currently shooting for Mari Selvaraj’s upcoming film, Karnan. He is also working on the pre-production of his second Bollywood film, Atrangi Re, directed by Aanand L Rai.
