After a Telugu remake, the 2015 Tamil blockbuster Thani Oruvan, will be remade in Bengali. Actors Jeet and Prosenjit Chatterjee are reportedly teaming up for yet-untitled Bengali remake.

“Yes, Thani Oruvan is being remade in Bengali. Jeet and Prosenjit are joining hands for the remake, which will be officially announced soon. The project is most likely to go on the floors later this year or early next year,” said an industry source.

Directed by Mohan Raja, Thani Oruvan featured his brother Jayam Ravi as the lead, while actor Arvind Swami was seen as a suave and conniving antagonist.

“In the remake, Jeet will essay Ravi’s part and Prosenjit will be seen playing the antagonist. The project is most likely to be bankrolled by Shree Venkatesh Films. The makers haven’t finalised the director yet,” the source added.

Thani Oruvan is currently being remade in Telugu as Dhruva, and it stars Ram Charan in the titular role.
