There have been reports of AR Murugadoss directorial "Kaththi" being remade in Hindi. Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar were reportedly the front-runners to star in the Hindi remake. Now, a picture posted by Murugadoss has given fillip to those rumours. The director has tweeted a picture, in which he is seen chatting with Salman Khan. The Tamil filmmaker is apparently narrating the story to the "Dabangg" star.
"Kaththi" villain Neil Nitin Mukesh had declared that either Salman Khan or Aamir Khan would be apt for the role played by Vijay in the Tamil movie. Murugadoss has always loved to remake his films in Hindi. First, he entered Bollywood with "Ghajini" remake starring Aamir Khan. Recently, he remade his blockbuster "Thuppakki" ("Holiday") with Akshay Kumar in the lead role.
Now, Murugadoss is set to remake "Kaththi" in Hindi. His tweet is seen as an indication of his joint venture with Salman Khan. Meanwhile, the tweet has gone viral on social networking sites.
Fans are thrilled over the development and has been asking a lot of questions on Twitter. But the director seems to be in no mood to respond. Nonetheless, even if Salman Khan gives green signal for the movie, the project will not start in the near future as the director is tied up with a female-oriented Hindi movie with Sonakshi Sinha.
