If all goes right, Bollywood actor Parineeti Chopra might just be making her Telugu debut with Premam, which incidentally is a remake of hit Malayalam film of the same name. "We are in talks with Parineeti. Since she has a project with Farah Khan, she's finding it difficult to allocate dates. Nothing is yet to be confirmed," film's director Chandoo Mondeti said.

Chandoo also said they're in talks with actor Disha Patani to play one of the leads in the yet-untitled remake, which will also feature Akkineni Naga Chaitanya in the lead. "Anupama from the original is most likely to reprise her own role in the remake. We are also in talks with her," he said.

Premam, which has emerged as the biggest hit in the history of Malayalam industry, is the coming of age tale of the protagonist at different stages in his life. The remake will be produced by S Radha Krishna of Haarika and Hassine Creations banner. It's expected to go on floors later this year.

Naga Chaitanya will play the male lead in the Telugu remake of Premam.
