But now, one hears that madhavan also has backed out of the project due to undisclosed reasons. In fact, Insiders say that its Dhanush, who has shown a keen interest in the remake of the film and he has already given his approval for it.
Interestingly, Trisha was retained as the heroine, despite many changes in the choice of heroes. The producer is very particular that Trisha plays the role of Kareena in this tamil remake.
