According to reports, Raviteja requested that the writing team make some significant alterations to the plot. This is so because SJ Suryah, who plays the anti-hero pretty naturally in the original, is the parallel lead to simbu, who is the hero. If Raviteja plays simbu again, Siddhu's portrayal as a police officer (SJ Surya) won't make any sense. Although Raviteja would look well as a police officer given his advanced age, the actor doesn't want to portray a bad guy at this point in his career when he has enormous smash movies in the 100+ crore area heading his way.
For this reason, it is reported that the production company behind this remake has now put together a group of talented and well-known telugu writers to update the script. Raviteja will only take on this remake if the script is strong. Otherwise, he can decide to tell siddhu a completely different story.
