Well, director Sathish Kaushik has said that he want to cast Salman Khan in the remake of Tamil blockbuster Pithamagan, which was one of the films that catapulted Vikram to fame and fortune. The filmmaker, who has completed the script recently, will be soon approaching Sallu bhai. He believes that the actor could do justice to the role of a graveyard caretaker. However, it is noted that they have worked before in Tere Naam, which was also a Vikram's film titled Sethu.
Pithamagan tells the story of an autistic cemetery man named Chithan played by Vikram and small-time thief Sakthi, which was performed by Surya (Rakta Charitra fame). The former, who was an orphan at a young age, grew in a world where he did not have much contacts with humans. However, Sakthi tries to reform the uncivilised Chithan and they become good friends in the process. Meanwhile, the former is killed by a ganja dealer. How Chithan seeks revenge against him is the crux of the story.
