Rajinikanth’s ‘Thee’,’BIlla’, Velaikaran’, ‘Ram Robert Rahim’, ‘Pannakaran’ and ‘Maaveeran’ were the remakes of Amitabh Bachchan’s classics ‘Deewar’, ‘Don’, ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’, ‘Laawaris’ and ‘Mard’.
But looks like the tables have turned and the roles have reversed; because it’s time for the Shahenshah of Indian Cinema to step into the shoes of the Thalaiva of Indian Cinema!
If reports are to be believed then the makers of Superstar Rajinikanth’s latest outing ‘Kabali’ are quite unhappy with how the movie has fared in the northern states of the nation, given the way how another South movie ‘Baahubali’ had performed all across the nation.
As a result, they are now planning to rope in Amitabh Bachchan to play the role of ‘Kabali’ in the Hindi remake of the same!
So will we get to see Amitabh Bachchan saying: “Hindi filmon mein kaala til, badi badi mucchein, lungi pehne huye ko Amrish Puri “Oye Kabali” - aise bulaate hi sar jhukaa kar “Jee maalik” bol kar khada ho jaata hai…aisa Kabali samjha hai kya?”?
Only time will tell…
