After Aamir Khan starrer 3 Idiots, now the Perfectionist's home production Delhi Belly is all set to be remade in Tamil. The Bollywood movie, which was released last Friday, has attracted Kollywood filmmakers, as they are trying to get the remake rights of the movie.
Sources say that two Tamil directors have liked the movie and are keen to remake the film. They have reportedly approached the makers of Delhi Belly but nothing has been finalized yet. Industry insiders say that it is too early to say, as the Bollywood movie is an adult certificate film. And the Regional Censor Board is very strict when it comes to controversial content.
There are a few instances of the Regional Censor Board, which banned movies for its controversial content. Here in South, the board considers the taste of native viewers and anything which might create trouble, could be chopped straight away, it adds.
Delhi Belly might have created wonders at the box-office in Bollywood but it cannot be assured the same in Tamil, as the taste of the audience is completely different from the North movie goers. If the makers of the film change the script according to the taste of the native audience, then it might fetch good response, a source concludes.
It may be recalled that Shankar's Boyz, which was released in 2003, had also created furore in the Tamil film industry for its characterization of the lead actors. Though the movie was released without many cuts, it faced wrath of several organizations after the release.
