Without perturbed by the run of his Vettai, director-producer Lingusamy is all set to go in for the Hindi remake. The news has been in the air ever since the release of the movie. Box office feedback has been moderate for Vettai and Lingusamy is personally content with the success of the movie. The result has benefitted Maddy and Arya so much so as that of Amala Paul.
Now Lingusamy confirmed the remake of Hindi version and said he will be visiting Mumbai to draw out the preliminary features. He could not reveal much about the project except this. Lingusamy said the cast and the technical crew will be finalized after his return from Mumbai. Meanwhile, Aarya is said to have expressed his wish to make the role in Hindi remake too. Lingusamy said his production movie Vazhakku Enn 18/9, directed by Balaji Shakthivel is getting ready for the release.
As he was engaged with the release and the post-release deeds of Vettai, he could not enter into the reels of this film. He said he has got two effective scripts for Vishal to surpass his Sandakozhi, as Vishal is too keen on being worked by Lingusamy. Whether this project or the Hindi remake of Vettai could be the earlier one, only Lingusamy should reveal.
‘Vettai’ remake not confirmed – Madhavan
Rumour mills are working overtime that Madhavan will reprise the role he did in the original for the Hindi remake of ‘Vettai‘. Speaking to SouthDreamz.com, Madhavan clarifies, “It’s not yet confirmed whether or not I will be a part of it due to my injury, I have to go for treatment for at least another five months!”
Director Lingusamy, a Tamil commercial film specialist, is venturing into Bollywood with the remake of his 2012 Pongal offering ‘Vettai‘ that saw Madhavan, Aarya, Sameera Reddy and Amala Paul in the lead. Shahid Kapoor will be replacing Aarya in the Hindi remake and the makers are keen on casting Madhavan for the remake however due to the star’s treatment, we can’t be sure if he will be a part of the film or not.
Grapevine also has it that Deepika Padukone and Sonakshi Sinha are the frontrunners for the female leads of the remake. The film will go on floors come April.
Lingusamy has expressed that a formal announcement about the cast and crew of the remake will be made during the 50th day celebrations of the Tamil version.
