If sources are to be believed, Chiyaan Vikram is been approached by producers to reprise the role of Akshay Kumar in the Tamil remake of Special 26. Kamal Haasan and Karthi were considered for the same earlier.
Veteran actor Satyaraj is touted to play Anupam Kher’s role in this remale ventuer, but it is too early as the makers are yet to finalize complete cast and crew. N. Subash Chandra Bose of Thirupathi Brothers banner snapped the remake rights of hit Bollywood film Special 26 that featured Akshay Kumar, kajal Agarwal and Anupam Kher in the lead roles.
Vimal-Lakshmi Menon’s Manja Pai, Kamal’s Uttama Villain, Suriya’s Anjaan and Vijay Sethupathi’s Idam Porul Eval are the forthcoming Tamil films under Thirupathi Brothers banner and a formal announcement about Special 26 remake is expected soon.
However, Vikram is likely to give his nod for director Vijay Milton’s upcoming film. Meanwhile, Vikram is busy with Shankar directing Ai, being planned to release sometime this Summer.
