Khiladi Kumar wasn’t the only one interested in remaking this song though.

The Maximum actor had planned to incorporate the foot-tapping Southern number in his maiden home Hindi film production Lucky Unlucky and had even chalked out details of singers and choreographers for it.

But Sonu was certain from the beginning that he didn’t want into get into a legal battle with his dear friend over a professional matter. The Maximum actor confirmed that Akki will adapt the chartbuster for the Hindi speaking audience. Sonu says, “Yes, Akshay is remaking Appdi podu.”

We don’t know which film the Rowdy Rathore superstar plans to incorporate Appdi podu into. But if rumours are to be believed, Akki will croon the Hindi equivalent in his forthcoming Naam Boss Hai. By the way, this film will be a remake of the south blockbuster Pokiri Raja, to be helmed by Blue director Anthony D’Souza.

After Chinta ta ta Akki will lure audiences into theatres with the irresistible Appdi podu. This is one song we can’t wait to shake booty to.
