The film is the remake of Telugu hit ‘Ready’. The big news here is Asin edged out Deepika Padukone to get this film to be directed by Anees Bazmee.
Salman and Asin continues to be good friends even after their earlier film together ‘London Dreams’ bombed. Sources say that it was Salman Khan who recommended Asin for the project.
‘Ready’ starred Ram and Genelia and was one of the super hits films of 2008 in Telugu. The film is being remade in Tamil as ‘Uthamaputhiran’ with Dhanush and Genelia.
How ever the producer of the Hindi version Bhushan Kumar of T-Series refused to comment on the casting but confirmed the project is on.
