VI­JAY DROPS A BOMB­SHELL

Weekend Witness - - Celebrities -

IT is now a known fact that su­per­star Vi­jay has been fac­ing a string of flops for the past few years. Vi­jay’s de­ci­sion to star in the re­make of the Bol­ly­wood hit film 3 Id­iots has come as a shocker, con­sid­er­ing the movie doesn’t add scope to Vi­jay’s style of hero­ism.

The buzz from Kol­ly­wood sug­gests that mav­er­ick filmmaker Shankar will be di­rect­ing the film. Gem­ini Labs, which has acquired the Tamil re­make rights of

3 Id­iots, is said to be ne­go­ti­at­ing with some young lead­ing he­roes to star along­side Vi­jay in the film. The hunt for a suit­able di­rec­tor to di­rect the Tamil ver­sion has led Gem­ini Labs to many di­rec­tors, from Dha­rani to the Vish­nu­vard­han, and it has fi­nally roped in Shankar, who is in the fi­nal stages of mak­ing his Ra­jni­star­rer En­thi­ran: The Robot.

Ac­cord­ing to the grapevine, Shankar has agreed in prin­ci­ple to di­rect the film, but has told the pro­ducer of the film not to leak it of­fi­cially be­fore the re­lease of his own mega­film.

Per­son­ally, I think Vi­jay is to­tally mis­cast for the 3 Id­iots lead­ing role.
