Grapevine has it that Dhanush would be doing the role played by his father-in-law and superstar Rajinikanth, and Silambarasan is stepping into the shoes of Kamal Hassan. It is also rumoured that Shruti Hassan will reprise the role played by Sripriya in the original.
However, nothing has been finalised yet and both the actors have not opened up on the project. Currently, they are busy with their respective projects and it is only after the completion of those films, they could be taking up the remake of Ilamai Oonjal Aadukirathu.
Well, it is interesting to note that till last year, Dhanush and Silambarasan were not seen together much at public platforms. But all of a sudden, they bonded well in Dubai during SIIMA awards. Later, Simbu invited the 'Kolaveri di...' hitmaker for his birthday bash, thereby putting an end to all the speculations related to their rivalry.
Ilamai Oonjal Aadukirathu was a romantic film directed by CV Sridhar. The film also starred Jayachitra and had Ilaiyaraaja's music.
