Pokkiri was a money spinner in Tamil. Now the Hindi remake Wanted, starring Salman Khan and Ayesha Takia in lead roles is ready for release. Prabhu Deva, who directed the Tamil version has also directed the Hindi version. Directing the Hindi version (the first Hindi film he has directed) was a difficult proposition, says Prabhu Deva. He felt that the pressure factor was more.
Prabhu mentions keeping the tastes of Hindi audiences in mind, he made a lot of changes from the original in the song and comedy sequences. Directing a talented dancer like Ayesha and the cooperative Salman Khan made his job easier.
