It is a known news that Gemini Film Circuit has acquired South Indian remake rights of 3 Idiots for a hefty price.
The latest buzz in the Kolly town is ace director Shankar will be directing the Tamil remake of Bollywood block buster 3 Idiots, starred Aamir Khan, Madhavan, Sharman Joshi in the lead roles.
Meanwhile, rumours are afloat that most top heroes here are interested in being a part of the remake, albeit on their own terms.
If reports are to be believed, Shankar has decided the lead star cast, Vijay, Jeeva and Siddarth have been selected to play the three lead roles.
Though 3 Idiots turned out to be a mega hit in Hindi, not everybody is convinced it will work commercially in Tamil or Telugu. Leading producer says, “It is very tough to remake 3 Idiots in Tamil or Telugu. Films with a soft nature don’t generally turn out to be blockbusters in these languages. Films that are action-oriented turn out to be blockbusters here.”
