Malayalam film Manichitrathaaz has always come to Vineeth's rescue whenever he or his career was in trouble. Now for another time, the film is going to help him out of his present career stagnation. In the orignal Malayalam film Manichitrathaaz, he played the role of poet Ramanathan. When the film was remade in Tamil, the poet became a classical dancer. As far as Vineeth is concerned, he could dance with both his eyes closed shut. Acting in the role was therefore not a problem for him.
The film is now being remade in Hindi, this time titled Bhul Bhulaiya. Priyadarshan is directing it. Akshay Kumar is playing the hero's role. Shiney Ahuja will play the role that Suresh Gopi did in the orignal Malayalam version.
Vidya Balan is the heroine of the film. In the Hindi film, Ramanathan is a classical dancer. And guess what - Vineeth is going to play the same role in the Hindi version too! Priyadarshan had previously launched Jagadeesh and Innocent in Bollywood in comic roles. It is now Vineeth's turn.
