Boney has made the super successful Vakeel Saab and more recently, the remake of Pink in Telugu with Pawan Kalyan. Soon, he will splash Ajith Kumar’s Valimai in Tamil. He is also going to remake Article 15 in Tamil with Udhayanidhi Stalin."
The Hindi remake of One is reportedly to go on floors in the first quarter of 2022.
