Call it a coincidence!

We've been hearing a lot about Billoo Barber, an adaptation of the Malayalam film KathaParayumbol, with Shah Rukh Khan playing himself and Irrfan Khan as the barber.

So what's new?

Only that a Tamil-Telugu version titled Kuselan with none other than Rajnikant is also being planned. With Rajnikant and Khan both enacting the role a benevolent buddy, a clash of the superstars can be expected.

Friend indeed
P Vasu, director of the Rajnikant mega-hit Chandramukhi, is going through a low phase after three consecutive duds - Paramasivan, Maharadhi and Krishnaarjun. Rajnikant has agreed to bail him out.

Since Rajnikant given dates for Vasu's Kuselan, Shankar's Robot has been pushed forward from May to August.

Meanwhile, buzz is that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who was supposed to be a part of this project has dropped out because she will be on the Bachchan world tour at the time.
