|It could be a role of a lifetime for the two Khans of Bollywood! Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan, both are being considered to play a cop in an undercover crime thriller. The movie is the remake of Gautham Menon’s hit film Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu and starred south star Kamal Haasan.
What makes the movie apt for a Bollywood remake? The film Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu not only was a hit film but also wowed the critics as well because of its strong script and acting by Kamal Haasan. Also it was a modern crime thriller with some super advanced special effects.
Director Gautham Menon is very keen to recreate Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu magic in Bollywood, and believes that either Shahrukh or Salman can step into the mighty shoes of Kamal Hassan.
Gautham is quoted as saying, “We are showing the film around and we hope it gets picked up. As far as SRK and Salman go, all I can say is that it is a wish list. It would be great if either come on board, because it’s a film for the masses.”
According to the sources, it is the role of a daredevil cop who is not just defined by his work, but also the style in which he does it. So, who do you think is most perfect for a role like this? Since both Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan are stylish enough to play a tough cop and would add a star power to the film, the decision lies with them. Let’s see who warms up to the idea of the film.
The other Khan, Aamir Khan, is already playing a investigative cop in Reema Kagti’s forthcoming Dhuaan.
