Bollywood is no more too far fetched for Tamil Cinema now. It was only the very lucky (or successful) directors who were really able to score a Bollywood big one. Among them are Bharatiraja and K Bhagyaraaj. Some of these directors had very bad experiences and jumped straight back into Tamil Cinema.
But in the changing of trends, many young and upcoming directors have found a good opening in Bollywood. The nig boys of Bollywood, The Khans and the Bachchans, seem to be very eager to get things going with South Indian film directors – even those who are making their debut in Bollywood. At present, Prabhudeva is working with Salman Khan in Pokkiri Hindi remake and AR Murugadoss is working on the Ghajini Hindi remake with Aamir Khan.
Now add another top-notch director to that list - Selvaraghavan. He has tasted success with Tamil Cinema over and over again. Now he will work with none other than Vivek Oberoi. The film is the Hindi remake of 7G Rainbow Colony.
The star recently visited Chennai, the place where he was born, and watched the orignal film with Dhanush and Selvaraghavan. After watching the film, he was on the top of the world and asked the director to start the work of the film as soon as possible. He later dined with Selva and his family. Selva will first finish the shooting of Aayirathil Oruvan before starting the shooting of the film.
Selva will direct his debut Hindi movie after the completion of Aayirathil Oruvan.
