Actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan is likely to play the lead in the Tamil remake of Hindi blockbuster “PK”, according to sources.
The yet-untitled remake will be produced by Gemini Film Circuit, which had earlier remade Rajkumar Hirani’s “Munnabhai M.B.B.S.” and “3 Idiots” as “Vasool Raja M.B.B.S.” and “Nanban”, respectively.
“Gemini Film Circuit has acquired the film’s remake rights and Kamal Haasan is expected to play the lead. Gemini had already remade two of Hirani’s films and they were really impressed with ‘PK’ too,” a source close to the production house told IANS.
“Kamal sir will choose the director of his choice. He might even direct it,” said the source.
“PK”, which was produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, and starred Aamir Khan, turned out to be biggest grossing Indian film.
