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.
