Now that their Tamil movie ‘Vettai’ has went on to become a blockbuster down south, UTV Motion Pictures are keen on remaking the movie in Hindi.

The movie revolves around two brother played by Madhavan and Arya. While one brother is peace loving the other is a ruffian. The movie garnered positive response by both critics and audience.

The production house wants to recreate the same magic in Hindi remake and are keen to cast a never before seen pairing of Shah Rukh Khan and Imran Khan as the brothers.

It is rumored that this hasn’t gone down well with Madhavan, as he has not only carved his niche in South Indian movies but also in Bollywood. But the production house wants a fresh pairing in the Hindi remake.

“But UTV, who have earned huge profits with the Tamil film, would rather take the remake further with two big stars in the lead roles. And since Shah Rukh and Imran have shied away from remakes of South Indian films, the production house feels that the novelty factor of their pairing will add to the edge of the remake,” said a source to a daily.

When contacted, the CEO of UTV Motion Pictures Siddharth Roy Kapoor said, “Nothing has been finalised yet. It’s too early to talk about the details. But we’re definitely considering remaking our Tamil production ‘Vettai’ in Hindi, since it’s a huge success down south”.
