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.
