'Bangalore Days' would be a very familiar Malayalam movie to most of the south Indian audience. Written and directed by Anjali Menon, it was one of the Malayalam blockbusters in 2014, catapulting the actors in it to superstardom. 'Bommarillu' Bhaskar is in charge of remaking  'Bangalore Days' in Tamil, having been not tasting success in his last two outings in Telugu in the last five years.

Size Zero / Inji Idupazhagi (Telugu, Tamil - 2015)

Starring Anushka Shetty, Arya, Urvashi, Prakash Raj, Sonal Chauhan. Directed by Prakash Kovelamudi.

Very few established heroines in Indian cinema try to get out of their comfort zones and take up challenging projects to create their own market. In the past, Vijayashanthi had such commanding position in male dominated Telugu cinema. Now, we have Anushka, who could single handedly carry a blockbuster movie like Arundathi or a historical like Rudhramadevi. This time, she comes up with 'Size Zero' or 'Inji Idupazhagi', getting simultaneous releases in Telugu and Tamil once again
