We already have knowledge that director Shankar is remaking the super-hit Hindi movie 3 Idiots in Tamil and Telugu. As in the case of any Shankar movie, the news mill never seems to close. When it was first decided that Vijay will enact Aamir Khan’s role in the movie, Madhavan and Silambarasan were roped in for the other two roles. It was Madhavan’s turn first to opt out of this movie due to his prior commitments. Now the latest is that Silambarasan is also out of the project. The reasons for this are unknown and we are sure to keep you posted on this.
This latest develpoment puts Shankar in a state of bother as it is becoming increasingly difficult to find a suitable replacemnt for Maddy and STR. Produced by Gemini film circuit, the music of this multi-starrer is by Harris Jeyaraj and the camera is to be wielded by Manoj Paramahamsa.yss thalaivan STR in twitter he conformed did nt du 3 idiots remake n tamil project (Met shankar sir and had a discussion on 3 idiots and now here is the news . I am not doing 3 idiots .I wish the team all the very best .)
The biggest blockbuster in Indian cinema, Rajkumar Hirani’s 3 Idiots, is going to be remade by a leading south Indian film production company in Tamil and Telugu. Shankar, the numero uno director in south India, has confirmed to news channels in Andhra that he will be in charge of the remake. There will be an official statement once Shankar decides on the cast and crew of the film.
Meanwhile, Shankar’s publicist has tweeted that Vijay, Simbu and Madhavan, along with Sathyaraj (playing the role made memorable by Boman Irani), will feature in the Tamil version, while the only change in the Telugu version will be Mahesh Babu replacing Vijay. If this dream project takes off, then it will perhaps be the biggest ever movie in south cinema. Vidhu Vinod Chopra, the producer of the original, has confirmed that he has sold the remake rights to the leading production house in south, who had earlier purchased his Munna Bhai MBBS.
A spokesperson of the production house confirmed that the project will take place after Shankar releases his magnum opus Endhiran. Asked why Shankar, who normally does not do remakes, has opted for the project, the spokesperson said, “After doing a film (Endhiran) which cost more than Rs 100 crore, he cannot go back to doing mundane movies. The remake of 3 Idiots is a bilingual and features big stars like Vijay and Mahesh. It cannot get bigger than this.” Shankar and the production house feel that what will work in favour of the film, apart from being a multi-starrer, is its “story, which has pure Indian sentiments and the message about the educational system.” “Education is one of south India’s biggest industries and Shankar will make necessary changes and package it to suit the taste of the local audiences,” the source added.
Meanwhile, Madhavan has tweeted, “So sorry folks! I’m unable to do 3 Idiots in Tamil and Telugu. Have other plans. I am sure they will find worthier replacements.”
Simbu, on the other hand, has said that it’s too early to comment as talks are still on. Says Simbu, who thoroughly enjoyed the Hindi flick, “There’s a message against today’s educational system that’s told in an entertaining manner. Honestly, I’m trying to work out my dates to do the film”. Every heroine worth her salt in Kollywood is also trying to step into the role done superbly by Kareena Kapoor.
