Sometime back it was reported that A.R Murugadoss is planning a Hindi remake of the Tamil blockbuster 'Kaththi' which will be helmed by debutant Jagan. Speculations are rifle that Akshay Kumar will reprise Vijay's role in the film. Now here's some exciting scoop doing rounds.
If all goes well then we hear Taapsee Pannu will step into Samantha Ruth Prabhu's shoes. Akshay and Taapsee had previously worked together in Neeraj Pandey's 'Baby'.
'Kaththi' is the story of two look-a-likes Kathiresan and Jeevanantham (both played by Vijay), focusing on the burning issues of farmers committing suicide due to corporate encroachment. Neil Nitin Mukesh played the main antagonist. It needs to be seen whether the actor will retain his negative avatar in this film too.
However the makers are yet to do the official announcement! Stay tuned for more updates.
