Avatharam Tamil remake in the works?

Dileep starrer Avatharam, directed by Joshiy, came out to packed houses on August 1st, and the movie so far has been grossing well and is holding steady against its competition. The ‘popular hero’ is surely a title well earned by Dileep, as he seems to be effortlessly delivering one successful product after another.


Another name to be mentioned here is of course that of Lakshmi Menon’s! The young starlet who is the leading lady in the film finally has a hit on her hands in Malayalam, and not just that, she had the Tamil release Jigarthanda on the same day and that one is doing phenomenal business all across as well!

Fortune favours the talented, sure, but in the case of Lakshmi, it is just ridiculous the amount of success this very young diva has seen in her short career so far!
And now, there are rumours flying around that a Tamil and possibly even a Telugu remake of Avatharam may be in the works. We do not know the official details yet but the rumour mills have reported that a popular Kollywood production house is all too eager to bag the remake rights for Avatharam!

And not just that, it also says that Ilaya Thalapathy Vijay maybe a leading candidate to star in the Tamil version. Well, it is not much of a stretch after all – Kaavalan, which starred Vijay in Tamil, was a remake of the Dileep starrer Bodyguard!

Will history repeat itself here?

Avatharam is a mass masala entertainer with all the right ingredients, so the notion that Tamil/Telugu audiences will love it with a few tweaks and the right casting is a certainty.

Also, will this mean that Lakshmi Menon, who is currently hot property in Kollywood, will tackle the role in the remake as well?

My, my… so many questions and not many answers. As always, let us wait and find out…
