Tamil megastar Rajinikanth is back in business signing films to work on this year as well as next year. And now reportedly the Enthiran star has eyed on remaking the recently released Malayalam flick Bhaskar the Rascal starring Malayalam superstar Mammootty. Rajinikanth who was highly impressed by the film’s concept has expressed his wish to star in the Tamil remake of the film.
Reportedly, director of the original Malayalam version of Bhaskar The Rascal will be directing the Tamil version as well. Siddique, who has worked with Salman Khan in the hit film Bodyguard, is all set to direct Rajinikanth if everything falls into place. Actress Nayantara who starred in the original film has made a special request to star in the remake as well and director Siddique is in talks with her for the same.
Based on the life of a businessman Bhaskar Pillai (Mammootty), the story of the film shows how a rude business tycoon who lost his wife cares about nothing but his work and his commercial empire. But everything changes when he goes on a trip with his son and comes across a small business owner Hima (Nayantara) who is totally opposite by nature.
Although no official announcement has been made yet, it will be exciting to see Rajinikanth in a lovely family drama like Bhaskar the Rascal. The megastar has already signed a film with Madras director Ranjith. Rajinikanth’s film with Shankar, Enthiran 2 has reportedly been pushed to next year. The actor might also do a movie with Kanchana 2 director Raghava Lawrence, as he is highly impressed by his film.
