Names of some on-screen villains remain unforgettable. The best example is Mark Antony of Superstar Rajinikanth's 'Baashha'. One more to the list is 'Perumal Pichchai' of Vikram starrer 'Saami'.
Now that 'Saami' is getting ready to be remade in Hindi, by director K S Ravikumar, a guessing game was on as to who would play the role made memorable in Tamil by veteran Kota Srinivasa Rao.
The answer is Prakash Raj, who has become a much-wanted actor in Bollywood these days. "He will play the all-powerful underworld don in the Hindi version Saami, which will have Sanjay Dutt in the lead," say sources.
Shooting for the movie is expected to get a kick start soon, as Ravikumar is on the verge of completing Rajini's 'Kochadaiyaan', for which he is the in-charge of direction-supervision. He has also penned the story, screenplay and dialogues for the film directed by Soundarya R Ashwin.
