The recently released Tamil flick Thani Oruvan seems to have created ripples among members of the Telugu film industry. It seems top stars are competing with each other to star in the Telugu remake of the film, which stars Jayam Ravi and Nayanthara in lead roles.

After an impressed Ram Charan had expressed his desire to act in the film’s remake, it now seems superstar Mahesh Babu has been approached to play the lead in Mohan Raja’s entertainer.

In the Tamil version, the protagonist Jayam Ravi plays the role of an IPS officer and if Mahesh indeed agrees to act in the film, it would add to the long list of movies – including Pokiri, Dookudu, and Aagadu – where he played the role of a cop.
