Ajith to remake Ayushmann Khurrana’s Article 15 in Tamil?
It seems like Tamil superstar Ajith is now showing more interest towards films with a social message. After remaking the widely acclaimed ‘Pink’ as ‘Nerkonda Paarvai’, the star is now in said to be in talks for the remake of Ayushmann Khurrana’s ‘Article 15’. Boney Kapoor, who produced ‘Nerkonda Paarvai’ as well as the upcoming ‘Thala 60’ has bagged the rights of ‘Article 15’. So there is a high possibility of him collaborating with Ajith for the third successive time.
‘Article 15’ is one of the most acclaimed films in Indian cinema this year. Directed by Anubhav Sinha, the film talks about the Article 15 of the Constitution of India, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of religion, race, caste, sex or place of birth. Upon its release in June this year, the film earned widespread critical acclaim and emerged as a huge commercial success as well.
If it is remade in Tamil, Ajith will be reprising the lead role of the sincere police officer played by Ayushmann. Earlier, it was also reported that Dhanush had also expressed interest in remaking ‘Article 15’. Let’s wait and see how things unfold.
