If the industry grapevine is anything to go by, 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. According to latest media reports, the Ranjhanaa star is very keen on remaking the film, as its emotions will work across audiences irrespective of language and region. In several of his interviews, 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 sir is very interested in the film’s remake. However, he can’t take up the project immediately even if the plan materializes 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. He also has a Bollywood project with Aanand L Rai in his kitty. 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.

Awaiting the release of VIP 2, Dhanush has an exciting year ahead. He started off 2017 with a bang, with his directorial debut Pa Paandi striking big at the box-office. His much anticipated Hollywood debut The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakhir might hit the screens later this year.
