The 2003 super hit film ‘Kaakha Kaakha’ which was a major milestone in the career of all the people connected with it – Goutham Menon, Suriya, Jyothika, Jeevan and more – is again making hot news in 2010.
When the movie was released in 2003 it became instantly popular even among the Bollywood bigwigs and they immediately vied to get the Hindi remake rights. Actor –Director Feroz Khan of ‘Qurbani’ and ‘Jaanbaaz’ fame flew down to Chennai and watched the film with the crew, liked it and immediately paid an advance for the Hindi remake rights. Feroz Khan was planning to cast his son Fardeen Khan in the Hindi version. But after Feroz Khan’s death in 2007 there was no news about the remake.
Now there is a buzz saying Vipul Shah and Goutham Menon are trying to buy the rights back from Fardeen Khan. They plan to do the film with John Abraham playing the lead role played meticulously by Suriya in the original.
As things were moving the original Tamil producer Thanu has thrown his hat in the ring. Now Thanu also wants to produce the Hindi version himself using his Bollywood contacts. According to Thanu, after paying the advance Feroz Khan wanted to cancel the agreement for his own reasons.
Thanu also says he has approached Salman Khan and Deepika Padukone for the main characters and they too have shown genuine interest.
