Silambarasan watched Delhi Belly recently and laughed so hard his sides hurt! When the suggestion to remake the film came up, STR was very keen on doing it we hear. It is a Bollywood film that had Imran Khan in a pivotal role. What set the film apart was its liberal dose of toilet humor and its expletive - ridden narrative.
One wonders whether the Tamil film audience might be game for this coming of age film. Even so, word is that the Tamil remake of Delhi Belly will be modified and watered down in order to suit Tamil tastes. Aamir Khan, the producer of the Hindi version has let slip that some production houses are interested in buying the rights to the film so negotiations are going on currently to seal the deal.
