Karan Johar to rope in Tamannah in his next film?

Buzz in town is that, filmmaker Karan Johar has purchased the rights to remake the Hindi version of the recent Telugu blockbuster ‘Oopiri’. The film itself is a remake of the French film 'The Intouchables', which is about the warm camaraderie that develops between a wheelchair-bound billionaire and his male caregiver.

If sources are to be believed then the beautiful actress Tamannah Bhatia, who starred in 'Oopri' might bag the lead role in the film's Bollywood version as well. As per sources, Karan was highly impressed by Tamannah’s performance in ‘Oopri’ and as the actress has performed immensely well in the Telegu version, the production house is considering to cast the gorgeous actress in the remake too.

Incidentally, this is the second time Karan Johar has bought the rights of a movie which stars Tamannah Bhatia in lead. Earlier Karan Johar’s Dharma Production was one of the crucial supporters of 'Baahubali: The Beginning'.

Well if that turns out to be true, it would be interesting to know who will be paired opposite Tamannah?

'Oopri' featured Tollywood super star Nagarjuna and Tamil star Kartik in lead.
