It seems like Silambarasan who was cleverly managing his acts not getting into the remake wagon has finally boarded the wagon. Silambarasan has signed the remake of the recent sensational Telugu hit ‘Vedam’ that starred Allu Arjun, Manoj and Anushka in lead roles.
Silambarasan who recently saw the Telugu ‘Vedam’ was floored immediately by the Cable Raju character played by Allu Arjun. The Tamil remake rights are with R B Choudary of Super Good Films and with the Tamil version R B Choudary’s son and actor ‘Jithan’ Ramesh will also turn a producer. Silambarasan has even completed a photo session for the remake.
Anushka was contacted to play her role in Tamil also. But the actress is said to have denied the offer. So the new sensation Tapsee of ‘Aadukalam’ may play the role of the commercial sex-worker in the film.
Silambarasan who was supposed to be is London this time for the ‘Podaa Podi’ shoot is still in Chennai for some reasons. One reason doing the rounds is that the artistes playing the secondary characters are being trained in dance as the film is a dance subject. Another reason said is that the team still hasn’t got the permissions to shoot at some special locations in London.
