The successful Bollywood film A Wednesday with Naseeruddin Shah and Anupam Kher in the lead with terrorism in its backdrop is getting ready to be remade in Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam languages. Kamal Hassan had evinced keen interest in bringing out this remake and joined hands with UTV to produce this film, with Kamal playing the role of Naseeruddin Shah. He convinced Venkatesh to play Anupam Kher"s role in Telugu, while Mohanlal would don the role in Tamil and Malayalam languages.
It is worth mentioning that Venkatesh had earlier agreed to pair up with Kamal Hassan for Marmayogi but that project was indefinitely postponed due to budget constraints. Chakri is likely to direct this film and the film would start rolling in March. A huge set would be erected in Hyderabad for this purpose. Producer Kirankumar Koneru of Siddham-fame had reportedly claimed the remake rights earlier, but he was cajoled by Kamal Hassan.
