Abhishek home production with Prabhudeva
Top Tollywood writer Kona Venkat is set to foray into Bollywood. The writer narrated a story to Abhishek Bachchan and he loved it. Prabhudheva will direct the film, which may go on the floors in November.
Earlier, Salman Khan had remade Kona’s Telugu hit Ready in Hindi with the same title and it was a huge hit. “It’s a very new concept and he (Abhishek) liked it very much. He decided to produce the film himself,” says Kona Venkat.
On Wednesday, the writer met Abhishek and the actor finalised the project. “I travelled with Abhishek for the last one year and discussed the story, finally he gave the green signal,” he says, adding, “Abhishek asked me to narrate the story to Prabhudheva and he too was excited about it.”
Kona has also penned the story for the Sridevi-starrer Mom, which is currently being shot. After English Vinglish, Sridevi had not shown interest in any script till she came across this one. Boney Kapoor is producing the heroine-centric film.
