The movie even had a successful run of 75 days in theaters which is indeed a rare phenomenon for small budget movies, thanks to the improvement in technology.
After rocking the south Indian movie industry D 16 has also managed to impress makers from the Bollywood. Karthick Naren confirmed recently that the Bollywood remake rights of the movie have been sold for a good price. It also seems that an A list actor has shown interest in starring in the remake of the movie. 22-year-old talented Karthick has seen to it that the name of the actor is not revealed. It is also said that the A list actor who had shown interest in the remake also wants Karthick Naren himself to handle don the director’s hat in Bollywood as well.
Karthick however assured that the Bollywood remake would not be his next immediate project since he is already into the works of Naragasooran. If the sources close to the director are to be believed the Thani Oruvan actor Arvind Swamy has agreed to play the lead in Naragasooran which probably might be funded by Gautham Menon under his Ondraga Entertainment banner.
