Reports emanating from Mumbai say that Aamir Khan and Salman Khan, the leading Bollywood heroes, are vying with each other to bag the Hindi remake rights of director AR Murugadoss’ latest Tamil film 7aam Arivu. The film, which starred Suriya and debutant Shruti Haasan in the lead and was released on Deepavali last month, has been going great guns all over the State.
Incidentally, it was Aamir Khan who played the title role in Murugadoss’ Hindi film Ghajini. Aamir was very happy to be playing the role essayed by Suriya with aplomb in the Tamil version. The film went on to become a huge hit, thereby increasing the ‘market value’ of Murugadoss in Bollywood as a director to reckon with.
Salman Khan, on the other hand, has starred in many Hindi remakes of successful Tamil films. Prominent among them were Wanted, the Hindi version of the Tamil super-hit film Pokkiri. Even Salman’s latest hit film Bodugyard was also the Hindi remake of the Tamil hit film Kaavalan. As such, it is said that both Aamir and Salman want to star in the Hindi remake of 7aam Arivu.
Both the Khans have watched the Tamil film and appear to be mighty impressed with the script. Aamir is apparently close to Murugadoss as he had earlier worked with him in Ghajini while Salman hasn’t worked with Murgugadoss earlier.
In the coming days, it’d be known as to who among Aamir and Salman wins the Hindi remake rights of 7aam Arivu!
