Ranji tried 'Vanatha polai' for Mohan Babu

Bachi The buzz in Chennai is that the Tamil megastar is playing mentor to this talented director, Vikraman. The grapevine bug swears that Rajni and Vikraman have had three meetings so far. In the first meeting, Rajnikanth requested to Vikraman to give the rights of Vaanatha Polai exclusively to his friend Mohan Babu. Rajni's requests are considered commands in Tamil Nadu but, much to the shock of the industry, Vikraman rejected Rajni's demand. But instead of losing his cool, the star met the rising director two more times to convince him.

Vikraman, who had promised the remake rights to Raja Sekhar kept his word. Bellamkonda Suresh is producing the remake with Raja Sekhar, Meena and Deepti Bhatnagar in the direction of Ravi Raja Pinisetty now.

Rajnikant, then gave his own script that is written in keeping himself in the mind to Dr. Mohan Babu and named it as 'Rayalaseema Ramanna Chowdary'. The rest is, as they say, history.
