The demand for old Rajini hits is increasing very rapidly. Many of the young actors want to step into the shoes of the Super Star. They are showing great interest in the remakes of his old hits. Already Ajith has signed up for two remakes of Rajini hits. One is Billa 2007, and the other one is Jhony. Vijay has already promised AVM Balasubramaniyam about acting in the remake version of Murattukkalai. Dhanush has taken the titles of Pollathavan and Ranga for his forthcoming films.
Now it is Bharath, who has recently jumped into the fray for Rajini films. He would like to act in the remake of yesteryear block- buster Padikkathavan. The rights of the movie are with V.Ravichandiran, leading Kannada actor and a close friend of Rajini. It is said that Vijay has already shown some interest in the remake of the film under his father's own banner. But he is waiting for the outcome of Billa 2007.
After hearing the news, we contacted Bharath. He said, 'Now I'm acting in 4 films. At present I have no plans of accepting any more new films. But I wish to act in a remake of a Rajini film. His Padikkathavan is an excellent movie. I watched that movie more than 25 times. An actor can learn a lot from Rajini. Particularly in Padikkathavan, his style, comic sense, his acting in the emotional scenes is definitely a lesson to an actor like me. If anybody would like to remake that film, I will immediately give my dates...
