It looks like Ranveer Singh has  competition. His  big cops-action film  Simmba, being directed by Rohit Shetty, which is a remake of the Telugu  hit Temper,  already has  a Tamil version for competition. Sounds confusing? It is! Wait, let us explain. Vishal Krishna, basking in the  huge success of his Tamil/Telugu cyber thriller  Irumbu Thirai has  bought the Tamil remake  rights of Puri Jagannath’s Telugu hit Temper which featured N T Rama Rao Junior as a hot-headed corrupt  cop  who befriends a  gang-lord. Nothing wrong with that as hit movies are constantly remade. But this movie that is being remade in Hindi will also have a Tamil version with a different star of course!

In Hindi, the announcement of Ranveer Singh coming together with Rohit Shetty made a lot of news. The poster of Ranveer as a fun cop caused a lot of excitement. The movie is going to be a big one as it is produced by Karan Johar and co-stars Sara Ali Khan. However, Vishal Krishna remains  unfazed by  the competition. “I  wanted to remake Temper  into  Tamil  as it deals with the  theme of  child rape. I feel it’s very  important for actors to use their  audiences’  support to  raise issues through and beyond entertainment.”

Vishal’s film to be directed by  the Irumbi Thirai director  P s Mithran, will undergo many changes  in the transition. “We are looking at  an entirely different  interpretation  of  the  story. Our Tamil version of Temper would be  completely different  from  the original.”
So how will Ranveer and Rohit’s film pan out? We guess, we will have to wait for both the versions to release and then decide for ourselves.
