According to reports, Mahesh Babu and Vijay have walked out of Shankar"s project. So, to fill their slots, the makers of 3 Rascals have opted to go with one hero who can reach out to both Telugu and Tamil audiences.
Surya"s name has been in the cards from the day Gemini Circuit bought the remake rights. But later Mahesh Babu and Vijay were approached and they had also shown interest to do the project. Now, as they have reportedly opted out of the project, the story on Surya has again started doing the rounds.
It is interesting to note that Surya"s blockbuster Ghajini was remade in Hindi with Aamir Khan. Both the versions were superhit and critics didn"t stop from comparing them. Now, if Surya can pull off 3 Idiots remake, we will get a better picture to measure the actors.
It seems rumours about Shankar"s 3 Rascals are never going to end! The latest speculation doing the rounds is that Rakta Charitra star Surya, who has a huge fan base in Telugu and Tamil, has replaced Mahesh Babu and Vijay in both the versions of 3 Idiots remake.
