Casting Process Yet To Begin
The casting process is yet to begin. Kathiresan is expected to finalise a director before approaching the lead actors.
Remaking a Rajinikanth movie has turned out be a blessing for Ajith Kumar in the past. He tasted a huge success from Billa, which was the remake of the superstar's classic movie of the same name.
Citing this reason, many believe that Moondru Mugam remake would be a tailor-made movie for Ajith Kumar.
Vijay and Karthi
Well, Vijay and Karthi's fans' too believe that their favourite stars could enact the roles made famous by Rajinikanth.
However, we have to note that Vijay, after Nanban, had admitted that he wish to star in original movies than remakes. Given this reason, he is unlikely to take up the movie.
