According to latest reports, in order to ensure the movie gets its due in North Circuit, popular filmmakers are reportedly planning to remake the film with Amitabh Bachchan in the lead. The film was also dubbed in Telugu, Hindi, Malayalam and Malay languages. But it seems like, to gain the attention of Bollywood audience, a Kabali remake in Hindi is on its way. Amitabh Bachchan might get into the skin of Rajinikanth’s role in the remake. However, an official confirmation about the same is still awaited.
A source close to Big B said, “Bachchan will star in the remake of Kabali. The reason Rajini’s Tamil films don’t do well when dubbed in Hindi is that they are very culture-specific. Kabali is set in the Tamil community in Malaysia. The flavor, culture and dialogues are all peculiar to the Tamil community.”
Rajinikanth and Big B have worked together in movies like Andha Kanoon, Geraftaar, and Hum. They share a great camaraderie and have huge respect for each other. In fact, many Hindi films starring Big B were remade in Tamil with Rajinikanth.
