Merlapaka Gandhi who is directing the Telugu remake does not want to deviate too much from the original movie. Speaking about it, Gandhi said, “We don’t want to tamper with the original too much. It’s a National Award-winning film and we want to treat it with the respect it deserves. However, we will be making a few changes to the screenplay so that it connects better with the Telugu audience. (sic.)”
