Shahid confirms 'Vettai' (South Indian Film) Remake

By FNN | February 28, 2012, 6:02pm IST
Now it can be told! Like some of his senior colleagues, Shahid Kapoor has consented to do a remake of a South Indian film. UTV's Tamil film VETTAI, starring Arya and R. Madhavan, will now be remade in Hindi, with Shahid essaying Arya's part in the remake. N. Linguswamy, the director of VETTAI, will direct the Hindi version as well.

Reportedly, a screening of the film was held for Shahid a few days ago and the actor agreed to be a part of the remake instantly. So much so that he has even allotted dates to the producers of the film [filming begins from mid-April onwards]. "In fact, Shahid has decided to push other assignments ahead to accommodate the remake," a trustworthy source informs me. Meanwhile, UTV is in the process of finalizing the second lead [R. Madhavan's part] of this remake.

Meanwhile, UTV's project directed by Abhishek Kapoor [not titled yet] will feature popular television actor Sushant Singh Rajput in one of the leads. This will mark Sushant's big screen debut.
