Irrfan Khan starrer ‘Hindi Medium’ is one of the most successful movies of Bollywood this year. The movie was released back in May and went on to become a Super Hit; it collected more 100 crores at the Box Office. ‘Hindi Medium’ was the official remake of Rajesh Nair’s Malayalam movie ‘Salt Mango Tree’; now, the movie is all set for the Tamil remake.
Actor Venkatesh was very impressed with ‘Hindi Medium’ and Irrfan’s performance and now he is planning for the Tamil remake of the movie, he will be seen in the role of Irrfan Khan and it will be directed by Nandhini Reddy. Now, not much is known about the project as of now, they are working on the script and most probably it will star next year.
Venkatesh is one of the most respected and honoured actors in the South Indian Film Industry, he has a huge fan following, till now he has done 72 films and impressed in most of them. His last movie was ‘Guru’, which was the remake of Tamil movie Irudhi Suttru and his presence in ‘Hindi Medium’ remake will feel special, he is the right actor to portray this role.
‘Hindi Medium’ was a universal story, it can fit anywhere and that’s why people instantly got connected with it, making a remake of this movie is obviously a good idea. The female lead of the movie has not been decided as of yet, let’s see who be seen as the mother in this movie.
The project might see some delay as Venkatesh has one more project in hand, which will be directed by Bommarillu Bhaskar. Venkatesh has stopped doing a lot of films, he comes with just one movie every year and it shows that he is a very dedicated actor.
