Bollywood blockbuster Raajneeti is the latest movie, which will be remade in Tamil. UTV Motion Pictures is planning to remake the film in Kollywood with Aarya, Madhavan, Prakash Raj, Sathyaraj and Bharath in the leads.
If reports are to be believed, Aarya will be seen in the role of Samar Pratap, which was played by Ranbir Kapoor in the original and Madhavan will be seen enacting the character donned by Arjun Rampal in Raajneeti. But the details of the characters played by Prakash Raj, Sathyaraj and Bharath are yet to be revealed.
The production house is reportedly in talks with Lingusamy. The filmmaker's latest movie Vettai is being produced by UTV Motion Pictures and he has signed three-film deal. Given the condition, there are strong buzz that the director might take up the project. There were reports that the movie bosses were planning to approach Shankar. But later changed their plans, as the director, who is making his first ever remake, Nanban, might not do another remake film in succession.
Raajneeti talks of warring cousins, dynastic rule and electoral politics of the Hindi heartland, besides the vicious and horrifying games some people play to attain power. The Tamil version of the film will be made keeping the tastes of the native audience in mind.
