Tamil actioner Kaththi starring Vijay which has already raked in Rs 100 crore, will not be remade in Telugu. The makers of the film have decided to release the dubbed version instead.
The dubbed version is slated for a Nov 21 release.
"There were plans to remake the film, but these have been scrapped now. The Telugu producer has decided to go ahead and release the dubbed version," said a source from the production team.
Actor Pawan Kalyan was to star in the film's Telugu remake. A special screening of the film was organised for him recently.
"He saw the film and liked it. But he didn't express keen interest to work in it," he said.
Directed by AR Murugadoss, Kaththi features Vijay, Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Neil Nitin Mukesh in the lead roles.
The film, which released Oct 22, has turned out to be a blockbuster.
