Charlie, the Dulquer Salmaan starring blockbuster movie, is all set to be remade in Tamil. AL Vijay, the talented Tamil film-maker, has been roped in to direct the Tamil version.
Vijay, who rose to fame with his directorial ventures
Madrasapattinam, Deivathirumagal, Thalaivaa, etc. is the
husband of popular actress Amala Paul. Versatile actor Madhavan
will reprise Dulquer's role in the remake.
In a recent interview, director AL Vijay confirmed that his next
project is Charlie remake. The director stated that the
team is planning to make the Tamil version slightly different from
the original, to satisfy the Tamil audiences.
He wants the remake to be a film with his signature and says
that he won't copy the style of Martin Prakkat, the director of
Charlie. Vijay feels that Madhavan is the perfect choice
for the title role in Tamil remake.
He also remarked that Charlie remake is the most
challenging project in his career, so far. According to the rumour
mills Vijay is planning to cast his wife Amala Paul, in the role
played by Parvathy.
Madhavan has recently watched the movie and appreciated the lead actor Dulquer Salmaan and the team members, through his Twitter page. Charlie was scripted by Unni R and produced by Finding Cinema.
