Niharika to ‘Abduct Men’ in Tollywood

These days, more and more Telugu films are getting remade into other languages while Telugu makers are finding only Hollywood and world-movies to be free-made here. And here comes an interesting snippet.

Reports are being heard that Konidela Niharika, fondly called as the mega daughter, will be starring in the remake of a hit Hindi film. It’s not a 100 crore budgeted movie but it collected more than 100 crores nett from Bollywood box office already. And the film is none other than Shraddha Kapoor and Raj Kumar Rao’s “Stree”, that released a couple of weeks ago.

Touted to be a horror comedy, the film is directed by Amar Kaushik and produced by Telugu filmmakers duo Raj and DK. Made under a budget of 15 crores, it saw a phenomenal response at box office. And once again the film has reinstated the film that horror comedy will do well all the times.

Keeping herself busy with Saaho shooting, Shraddha picked up this horror film only to make the third 100 crores grosser of her career after Ek Villain and Baaghi. Cut to Stree remake, Raj and DK confirmed the remake but remained tight-lipped about the leading lady. We hear that both Niharika and Samantha are approached for the now, while Niharika showed interest in the project.
