Khan's yesteryear Blockbuster Baazigar will speak Tamil
soon, with Shakthi, a young and dynamic hero in the lead. Ace
director P Vasu has bought the remake rights of the 1993
blockbuster many years before and now he wants to use the same to
establish his son strongly. The rest of the cast is yet to be
finalised. The film will go on floors after the completion of
Rajinikanth starrer Kuselan.
Shakthi was introduced by P Vasu in 2007 amid much fanfare in
Thottal Poo Malarum. But the movie did not do well due to
an unimpressive script and treatment.
Baazigar, the Hindi original directed by Abbas-Mastan, had
Shahrukh playing a negative role and also starred Kajol, Shilpa
Shetty and Dalip Tahil. The movie, inspired by the 1991 Hollywood
flick A Kiss before dying, established Shahrukh Khan as a
superstar in Bollywood.
