Actor-filmmaker Dhanush might direct and even star in the Tamil remake of Anurag Basu’s critically-acclaimed Barfi, which starred Ranbir Kapoor in the lead. The Ranjhanaa star is very keen on remaking the film.
Dhanush had admitted his love for the film and had said that he would like to take up such challenging characters.
“It’s true Dhanush is very interested in the film’s remake. However, he can’t take up the project immediately as he is occupied with three projects, including Vetrimaaran’s highly anticipated Vada Chennai trilogy.
He has just completed work on his Hollywood project. He will soon finish the pending portion of Enai Noki Paayum Thota and commence work on Maari 2.
If Barfi remake has to happen, it might go on the floors only in the second half of next year,” a source close to Dhanush said.
