Shah Rukh Khan or Salman in 'Raghavan' remake
Looks like Bollywood is in a mad rush to remake South Indian projects. The next movie in line to be remade in Hindi is the Tamil film "Vettaiyadu Vilayadu", that was released as "Raghavan" in Telugu.
The 2006 crime-thriller that starred Kamal Haasan, Jyothika and Kamalinee Mukherjee in lead roles will be remade in Hindi and an A-list actor from Bollywood is likely to play the lead role, we hear.
Confirming the news, Gautham Vasudev Menon, the director of the film, says, "I am keen on remaking the film in Hindi with a top actor from the Hindi film industry and I have a long wish list of actors who can carry off Kamal's role in the Hindi version. We are considering Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan to play the lead role. I think SRK will suit the role better. But I haven't approached any Bollywood actor yet as it's too early to speak to them."
The director plans to finish his other pending projects before he directs the Hindi remake of "Vettaiyadu Vilaydu". He is currently busy with the Jiiva-Samantha starrer "Neethaane Enn Ponvasantham", which will simultaneously be remade in Hindi and Telugu. He also has "Yohan: Adhyayam Ondru" with Vijay, and is awaiting the release of the Hindi remake of "Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya".
