Director Shankar, who is over whelmed with the success of
Endhiran - The Robot, is now gearing up for his next
project. The filmmaker is heading for the remake of Rajkumar
Hirani's blockbuster Hindi film 3 Idiots.
Recently, Shankar met the makers of 3 Idiots - director
Raju Hirani, producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Aamir Khan at the
grand premiere of The Robot in Mumbai. Sources say that
they had a long discussion about the Tamil remake.
Actor Vijay is playing the role of Rancho, which was played by
Aamir Khan in the original. Earlier, Shankar wanted Madhavan to
play the second lead but the actor was opted out as he is busy with
other projects. Now, the buzz is that Jeeva is likely to do the
role and the movie bosses are yet to finalize about the third lead,
which was portrayed by Sharman Joshi in 3 Idiots.
