'2 States' movie is based on a popular novel by Chetan Bhagat and was produced by Karan Johar. And now, for the first time, Karan Johar has sold his film rights to a filmmaker from a regional language. 

 

According to Bollywoodlife.com, producer Abhishek Nama of Abhishek Pictures has paid nearly ₹55 lakh for the movie rights. Earlier, Karan declined Tollywood film industry's requests to sell his films rights for remakes. 

 

However, this time, Abhishek managed to get the remake rights, and plans to start shooting next month.

 

A source said in the interview that Abhishek Nama wants Samantha and Naga Chaitanya as the lead. 

 

Samantha is a Malayali girl, and Naga Chaitanya is a Telugu boy, so the subject suits them, and their real life love affair will add glamour to it if they sign this film,” revealed a source.

 

Samantha has not signed any films after Janatha Garage.  But the producer is confident about convincing her for this film. 

 

Apart from the lead pair, the producer wants to rope in actors like Prakash Raj, Rao Ramesh, Ramya Krishna and Revathi for this film.

 

Both Naga and Samantha have confirmed that their wedding will take place next year. So now that we all know they are officially a couple, it would be exciting to see them play out a love story like 2 States
