UTV Motion Pictures has started planning the remake of Barfi, which is the
official Indian entry to the Oscars. Now, we hear that the hunt for
the lead role played by Ranbir Kapoor in the original has begun.
The buzz is that Silambarasan aka Simbu has been
approached by the makers of the film. The actor has reportedly
shown interest in the project but things are just being worked out.
In fact, Barfi has impressed the Tamil actor a lot and he
is confident on the subject working wonders in Kollywood
Apart from Simbu, Jeeva's name is also doing rounds. It may be
because the Ko star has recently worked with UTV Motion
Pictures' Mugamoodi and he shares a good rapport with the
makers of the movie.
In the recent times, the production house has been making
multiple versions of its successful movies. Delhi Belly,
which is being made in Tamil as Settai, and
Vettai, which is being remade in Hindi, are the two
examples of it.
Barfi starring Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and
Ileana D'Cruz has received a superb response. With the superb
performance of the lead stars and wonderful content, the movie is
doing a massive collection at the Box Office.
