If you were fed up of Bollywood films getting inspired from south Indian films, here’s a little piece of news that will cheer you up. UTV Motion Pictures will remake the 2011 hit Delhi Belly in Tamil.
The remake of this potty comedy will star Arya, Santhanam, Premgi, Hansika, Anjali and Nasser. The Tamil version will be directed by R. Kannan.
In the yet to be titled Tamil version, Imran Khan’s role will be played by Arya, the star of Vettai. “Our next Hindi release Rowdy Rathore is a remake of the superhit Telugu film Vikramarkudu, which was also remade in Tamil as Siruthai, another superhit. In the past we have successfully remade our Hindi productions in the South, like Khosla Ka Ghosla (in Tamil) and A Wednesday (in Tamil and Telegu). We believe Delhi Belly will work superbly well with Tamil audiences and we are thrilled with the exceptionally adapted screenplay that a team of young writers has developed, ” said Siddharth Roy Kapur, CEO, UTV Motion Pictures.
The film will go on the floors on 7 May 2012 in Chennai and is slated for a Pongal release in January 2013.
