Kamal Haasan wants Srk for Menon's remake - Realbollywood.com News

24 January 2012 3:08 AM, PST | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

Mumbai, Jan 24: If Kamal Haasan had his way, superstar Shah Rukh Khan will be the only actor to step into his shoes for the Hindi remake of Gautham Menon's Tamil film "Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu".

Shah Rukh is currently in a dilemma as he has to choose between the remakes of two Tamil films - "Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu" and A.R. Murugadoss's "Ramanna".

Both offer the picky King Khan a chance to do something he hasn't done before -- a south Indian remake with parts that he hasn't tried before.

"While Murugadoss's film casts Srk as a social crusader, Menon's film casts him as a cop, a role he has played just once in Shashilal. »
