Bhaskar the Rascal is one of the big successes that happened in Malayalam cinema this year and it had given Mega star Mammootty a sigh of relief as he was searching for a big success for the past 5 years. His last big success before Bhasakar the Rascal was way back in 2010, which was a multi-star Blockbuster named Pokkiri Raja. Prithviraj was in that film along with Mammootty and it was the debut film of the director Vyshakh as well.
After 5 years that he got another blockbuster through Bhaskar the Rascal directed by Siddique. Nayanthara was the female lead in that movie as well. There has been a lot of news coming earlier regarding its Tamil Remake and at first it has been reported that Super Star Rajinikanth will play the male lead in the Tamil version of the film. But now the latest report saying that Thala Ajith will play the male lead in the Tamil remake of the film which will be directed by Siddique himself.
Nayanthara will play the female lead in the Tamil version as well even though both the reports about Ajith’s and Nayanthara’s participation in the Tamil version is not an officially confirmed one. Siddique had earlier remade his films like Friends and Body Guard in to Tamil and made them super successes there as well. Siddique know the taste of Tamil audience well and that really helped him to deliver success there.
He had already worked with Ilaya Thalapthy Vijay and Suriya in Tamil as Suriya and Vijay acted together in the Tamil version of Friends and Vijay was the hero in the Tamil remake of his Malayalam film Body Guard. The Tamil remake of Body Guard was titled as Kavalan which gave an important success to Vijay who was going through a bad time in box office. After that success Vijay got back to back successes. This Tamil remake of Bhaskar the Rascal will be Siddique’s first film with Ajith as well if it is happened.
In Malayalam version of the Body Guard Nayanthara played the lead role and when it was remade to Tamil, Asin played the female lead in it.
