“Ajith, Vijay and Vikram will be the right choices to play the lead roles if ‘3 Idiots’ is remade in Tamil,” says Madhavan, one of the lead players of the Hindi hit, directed by Rajkumar Hirani.
After creating waves in Bollywood with 3 Idiots, Popular pan-Indian hero Madhavan will share screen space with the legendary Kamal Haasan in an upcoming Tamil flick to be directed by K.S. Ravikumar. Meanwhile, ever since Gemini Film Circuit bought the Telugu and Tamil remake rights of 3 Idiots from Vidhu Vinod Chopra, there is widespread anticipation about the lead roles. Madhavan was expected to reprise his role in Tamil, but the actor has now reportedly denied these rumours and says, “Because I had already given my heart and soul to the character I played in the Hindi version, I don’t think it will be interesting if I do the Tamil remake too.”
On suggesting Ajith, Vikram and Vijay for the Kollywood version, he says, “the film will sure become a super hit here if the three come forward to join forces. The top actors would fit to the roles well besides adding star value to the movie.”
Draw his attention to the fact that he is not acting in Tamil films of late, Madhavan says, “that is my mistake. Since I delivered few flops, I wanted to take a break and concentrated on Hindi movies. But I am making a comeback with Kamal sir’s next venture.”
