UTV Motion Pictures has started planning the remake of Barfi, which is the official Indian entry to the Oscars. Now, we hear that the hunt for the lead role played by Ranbir Kapoor in the original has begun.
The buzz is that Silambarasan aka Simbu has been approached by the makers of the film. The actor has reportedly shown interest in the project but things are just being worked out. In fact, Barfi has impressed the Tamil actor a lot and he is confident on the subject working wonders in Kollywood too.
Apart from Simbu, Jeeva's name is also doing rounds. It may be because the Ko star has recently worked with UTV Motion Pictures' Mugamoodi and he shares a good rapport with the makers of the movie.
In the recent times, the production house has been making multiple versions of its successful movies. Delhi Belly, which is being made in Tamil as Settai, and Vettai, which is being remade in Hindi, are the two examples of it.
Barfi starring Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Ileana D'Cruz has received a superb response. With the superb performance of the lead stars and wonderful content, the movie is doing a massive collection at the Box Office.
