Director Shankar who is awaiting the release of his upcoming movie I , might remake the recently released Aamir Khan's PK in Tamil. According to the latest buzz the Nanban director might work with Ilayathalapathy Vijay for the second time in the remake version of PK.
Shankar had recently praised the Aamir Khan starrer by calling it an enlightening, thought provoking and meaningfully funny film. Praising PK's director and actor, celebrated filmmaker Shankar said the movie was well written and directed by Rajkumar Hirani and it also had Aamir Khan's world class performance.
The news is that Shankar had insisted actor Vijay to watch the Aamir Khan starrer and had told him that he intends to remake the film in Tamil. What's more? He has even asked Vijay if he can reprise the role played by Aamir in the Tamil version. Though Vijay's response has not yet come to light, Vijay would definitely nod his head to work with Shankar if allegations take shape.
Shankar had earlier remade Aamir Khan's 3 Idiots in Tamil as Nanban. Interestingly, 3 Idiots was directed by the PK director and the Tamil version had Ilayathalapathy Vijay playing the role played by Aamir Khan in the original.
Even if these rumours turn out to be true, the Tamil remake of PK might not happen immediately as Vijay has a string of films lined up. Vijay who is currently working on his 58th film with Chimbu Deven which is touted to be a fantasy adventure will join hands with Atlee of Raja Rani fame for his 59th movie. Shankar on the other hand, might either work with Aamir Khan or Thala Ajith after I comes alive on silver screens across the globe.
