Vijay and Prabhu Deva team up for Pokiri remake

Vijay’s hunt for a director for his remake film Pokiri is over. According to sources, actor Prabhu Deva, has finally agreed to direct Vijay’s film after both Vishnuvardhan and Lawrence declined.

Financier Ramesh will be producing the film. Though there have been instances of actors directing films — like Kamal Haasan and Arjun — this is the first time a hero is directing another hero.

Katrina Kaif has been approached for the female lead, the source added. The film is expected to go on floors from June 1, after a formal pooja. Meanwhile, the buzz is that some of the distributors who had paid a big advance to producer Appachan (with whom Vijay was supposed to start his next project) have demanded their money back.
