Director Krish who made debut with critically acclaimed Gaayam is now testing his luck in Bollywood.
Krish will be directing a film titled Gabbar with Akshay Kumar. The film is remake of Tamil hit Ramana, which was also successfully remade in Telugu as Tagore starring Chiranjeevi.
Krish`s recent film, Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum, didn`t make any impact at box-office, yet he got this lucrative offer from producer-director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Sabhina Khan.
Akshay Kumar reportedly okayed the movie too. Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Sabhina Khan produced Rowdy Rathore with Akshay Kumar that went on to collect more than Rs 100 Crores. Rowdy Rathore was remake of our Telugu blockbuster Vikramarkudu. For Rowdy Rathore, they selected Prabhudeva as director. For this remake of Tagore, they chose Krish.
Meanwhile, we hear that Krish`s proposed film, Shivam, with Mahesh Babu has been put off.
