Tamannah has cleared the air by saying that no one had approached her so far to play the female protagonist in the Tamil remake of Bollywood blockbuster ‘3 Idiots’, which would be directed by Shankar.
“No, the reports are not true. I have not been offered the role so far,” the actress says, adding: “The Hindi original is a huge hit and I am hopeful that the Tamil version too will be equally big.”
Interestingly, if the role is offered to Tamannah, she would for the second time play a character played by Kareena Kapoor. The first time was in ‘Kanden Kadhalai’, which was inspired by ‘Jab We Met’.
Buzz is that the Tamil version of ‘3 Idiots’ would bring together Shankar and Vijay for the first time. Music will be by Harris Jayaraj. Remember Shankar worked as an associate to Vijay’s father S A Chandrasekaran before becoming a director.
