Finally AR Murgadoss's super hit Ramana is going to be remade in Bollywood.

The buzz is that producer and director Sanjay Leela Bhansali who made Rowdy Rathore has got the remake rights. The Hindi remake will have a catchy title - Gabbar.

He will remake it with his favourite Akshay Kumar playing the title role made memorable by Vijaykanth in the original. Murgadoss for some strange reasons is not interested in directing it in Hindi, instead Telugu director Krish will be doing the remake.

Now, as ARM is busy filming Akki for the Hindi version of Thuppakki, supposedly titled Pistol, there seems to be an official confirmation that Akshay will indeed be doing the Ramana remake, directed by Krish who's claim to fame is Telugu Gamyam and Vedham, which he remade in Tamil as Vaanam.
