Can Valmiki be as successful as Jigarthanda?

Remakes haven’t been able to register great collections like they did earlier. Chanti, Sundarakanda, Suryavamsham, Hitler, Raja, Pelli Chesukundam, Drushayam, Gabbar Singh have been examples of successful remakes. 
Except for Guru, Premam, Rakshasudu none of the remakes have been successful in recent years. Valmiki is a remake of Tamil Cult Classic, Jigarthanda and the film is releasing on 20th September, all over the world.
With different take on original and Varun Tej playing Bobby Simha’s character, for which je won National Award, we have to wait and see, if Harish Shankar can match the original. 
He was successful in making Dabangg as Gabbar Singh with Pawan Kalyan but can he repeat same with Valmiki? Can Pooja Hegde add mass attraction to the film? Can Varun Tej deliver stunning performance? 
All questions have some negative answers from social media naysayers but common audiences matter the most. Let’s wait and see.
