Akshay or Ranveer To Reprise Vijay’s Role In Hindi Remake of Kaththi
Bollywood’s leading producer and director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has procured the Hindi remake rights of actor Vijay’s blockbuster Tamil film Kaththi. Known for producing remakes of successful South films in Hindi, including Rowdy Rathore (Vikramarkudu) and Gabbar is Back (Ramana), Bhansali is said to be in talks with Akshay Kumar and Ranveer Singh to play the lead role in the Kaththi remake. Released in 2014, Vijay played a dual role in Kaththi who fights with the corporate companies after they grabbed the land of the farmers in his village, and a brainy criminal (Kathiresan) who escapes out of a Kolkata prison. In an accident, the criminal comes in place of Jeevandam and the unconscious scientist gets arrested by the cops. Interestingly, Vijay played a special cameo appearance in Akshay-starrer Rowdy Rathore, produced by Bhansali.
