Now the closer sources have revealed that the film will have Vijay, Silambarasan, and Madhavan will be playing the lead roles. Mahesh Babu will take on the lead role of 'Rancho" in Telugu version with both Simbhu and Maddy repeating their roles. Boman Irani"s character of a rigid professor will be played by Sathyaraj.
It"s worth mentioning that Sathyaraj was previously approached by Shankar to play the negative character in Rajinikanth starrer Sivaji – The Boss.
Well, the ardent buffs of A. R. Rahman may be disappointed as the academy award winner will not score music for this film as he is busy with global tour and is signing some international projects. Harris Jayaraj, who scored music for Shankar"s Anniyan will join hands with him for the second time.
In the recent times, it"s all about 3 Idiots remake in tinsel town that has been making hugh waves in Kollywood. With Gemini Film Productions signing Shankar to wield megaphones for both Tamil and Telugu version, the details about actors performing lead characters wasn"t confirmed.
