There were a lot of reports in the last few days over the remake of Telugu hit film Baadshah. It was reported that Vijay would be starring in the Tamil version of the movie. However, the actor has denied the rumours.
The Tamil rights have been bought by Prasad V Potluri of PVP Cinema. "PVP Cinema has bought the Tamil remake rights of Baadshah, which is likely to be remade with a top actor," a spokesperson for Baadshah told IANS. It was said that the producers were planning to remake it with Vijay in the lead. They reportedly had a word with Ilayathalapathy and they were likely to screen the film for him soon.
It is because Vijay, in the past, had got a lot of success in the remakes of other language films. Hence, it was believed that the Velayudham star was the first choice. Well, Illayathalapathy, who is busy filming his forthcoming film Thalaivaa in Australia, has clarified that he is not aware of it and the reports are false.
