After Aamir Khan starrer 3 Idiots, now the Perfectionist's
home production Delhi Belly is all set to be remade in
Tamil. The Bollywood movie, which was released last Friday, has
attracted Kollywood filmmakers, as they are trying to get the
remake rights of the movie.
Sources say that two Tamil directors have liked the movie and
are keen to remake the film. They have reportedly approached the
makers of Delhi Belly but nothing has been finalized yet.
Industry insiders say that it is too early to say, as the Bollywood
movie is an adult certificate film. And the Regional Censor Board
is very strict when it comes to controversial content.
There are a few instances of the Regional Censor Board, which
banned movies for its controversial content. Here in South, the
board considers the taste of native viewers and anything which
might create trouble, could be chopped straight away, it adds.
Delhi Belly might have created wonders at the
box-office in Bollywood but it cannot be assured the same in Tamil,
as the taste of the audience is completely different from the North
movie goers. If the makers of the film change the script according
to the taste of the native audience, then it might fetch good
response, a source concludes.
It may be recalled that Shankar's Boyz, which was
released in 2003, had also created furore in the Tamil film
industry for its characterization of the lead actors. Though the
movie was released without many cuts, it faced wrath of several
organizations after the release.
