Remake of 3 Idiots
Shankar who is directing this bilingual is ready for the shooting after Endhiran. Vijay is playing the role of Rancho in the Tamil version which was originally played by Aamir Khan in the movie. Gemini Film Circuit has bought the Telugu and Tamil remake rights from Vidhu Vinodh Chopra recently.
The cameraman for this movie is Ratnavelu and music is by Vijay Antony. The original Shantanu Moitra music with chart-busters like ‘Aal Izz Well’ and ‘Zoobie Doobie’ will be retained. Jeeva is playing the role of Raju which had played by Sharman Joshi. Farhan’s role(played by Madhavan in the original) is likely to be played by Srikanth (due to Madhavan and Siddarth not interested in the remake). On other roles, Sathyaraj will play Boman Irani and Ileana will play Kareena.
In Telugu Mahesh Babu will replace Vijay; Madhavan and Silambarasan are being retained for the Telugu. Sources said Shankar has settled for Yuvan Shankar Raja for the music score this time.
The ‘3-Idiots’ remake will be officially launched on December 6 and it’s having a high expectation for the Tamil title (might be 3 Rascals).
