Ilayathalapathy Vijay, who had shown interest to star in the
remake of Kannada blockbuster film Vishnuvardhana, is delaying the
project. It is because the actor is committed to three projects,
which will keep him busy for the next 12 months.
The buzz says that Vijay, who saw Kannada actor Sudeep's
Vishnuvardhana a few months ago, was impressed by the
storyline and was keen to remake it in Tamil. But as the dates of
the actor are packed, director Pon Kumaran was forced to delay the
film and start his next bilingual (Kannada and Tamil) project
Charulatha, which stars Priyamani.
Vijay is currently filming AR Murugadoss' Thupaki.
Then, he will start Gautham Menon's Yohan followed by
director AL Vijay's untited film.
Pon Kumaran, who was a former associate of KS Ravikumar, is
expected to start the Tamil version of Vishnuvardhana once
the actor allots the date. The project is likely to take off in mid
2012. However, it may be recalled that Karthi was also in the race
to act in the remake.
