Unheard News: Director Shankar to direct the 3 idiots Remake in Tamil.
If sources are to be trusted the producers of the remake movie after considering several directors from Tamil and Telugu industry, have managed to convince Shankar to carry over the project.
If it happens,Shankar would be breaking the mark of never attempted a remake in his 17-year career.
Even veteran director K. Balachandar, who always insisted on original script, had remade the Bollywood movie 1979 movie Golmaal, as Thillu Mullu in 1981, with superstar Rajinikanth playing a double role.
If he does, it’s sure to be a significant movie in Vijay’s career, since it’s been his long-cherished dream to act under Shankar’s direction. Maybe this tidbit from the past has something to do with it – Shankar was a former associate of Vijay’s father S.A. Chandrashekar in many films, including his mother Shoba Chandrashekar’s debut, Nanbargal.
