Seasoned star Ravi Teja showed a lot of interest in remaking the Tamil blockbuster ‘Theri’, starring Vijay in Telugu since it was one of the top grossers in the annals of Tamil cinema. The ‘Kick’ star teamed up with director Santhosh Srinivas who made hits like ‘Kandireega’ for this cop story.

They even shot for a couple of days, but Ravi Teja reportedly put the film on hold, probably to re-work on the script or doesn’t’ want to do a cop story at this point of time of his career.
