CHENNAI: Filmmaker Vamshi Paidipally, who was supposed to team up with actor Akhil Akkineni for a yet-untitled Telugu outing next, has reportedly exited the project.

"Vamshi was set to team up with Akhil, and he was initially interested. The Akkineni family wanted him to work on the Telugu remake of 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Dewaani'. However, he wasn't too keen on the idea because he had recently worked on the remake of a French film," a source told IANS.

Vamshi's "Oopiri", which had released in Tamil as "Thozha", was the official remake of French film "The Intouchables".

"Vamshi didn't want to work on another remake immediately. He was more interested to work on his own script which didn't go down well with actor Nagarjuna, who had planned to produce the remake under his home banner," the source said.

Since an amicable agreement couldn't be reached, Vamshi had no other option but to exit the project.

Vamshi plans to work with a bigger star next.

"He has a script ready to work with a leading Telugu star. He doesn't want to work on remakes for quite some time," the source added.
