But the makers did a highly unimaginable thing by using scenes from Hindi film as it is with dubbing and re-shot only 80% of the film even though they bought rights to the entire film.
Prabhu Deva, the director and makers had to take lot of criticism and with word going out, the movie failed on First Day itself, resulting for Megastar to look at politics.
Baahubali movies did use this technique as they were originally planned as Telugu-Tamil bilingual. The makers shot close-ups and big dialogue moments in both the languages while action scenes are shot without much dialogue exchange.
Still, the movie cannot be compared to Shankardada Zindabad technique as the makers did not use any other film or original film footage while re-making.
Guru producers shot Venkatesh scenes and some character scenes of Ritika Singh again in Telugu but they used boxing scenes and few others from original. Director Sudha Kongara, being same for both original Tamil and remake Telugu versions, took same actors for supporting roles and managed the entire thing.
Now, Kanna film is being dubbed and remade at the same time like Shankardada Zindabad and Guru in Telugu. Rajendra Prasad is acting as father of Aishwarya Rajesh in Telugu ang their scenes are shot by Bheemineni Srinivasarao separately.
Sivakarthikeyan’s role from original is not re-cast and they are going for dubbing for his parts and cricket scenes. Makers can easily dub them in even lesser cost than going this dubbing and remake way.
