Hot from the rumour mill: Ghilli will be reportedly remade in Hindi soon, with Deepika Padukone reprising the role played by Trisha.
It might be quite possible. Because Ghilli, which has been the most successful film of Vijay so far, achieved a phenomenal success and even outdid its source film Okkadu’s (Mahesh Babu) box-office collections!
It is a great idea to cast Deepika Padukone – the young actress who has bewitched the entire Bollywood – in Trisha’s roles. She will definitely do justice to the role; she will be able to portray the vulnerability and ebullience displayed by Trisha in Ghilli to perfection.
Well, since Deepika is the heroine, will Ranbir Kapoor be the hero of this film? And what will Bollywood do to match the popularity of ‘Appadi Podu’, a song from Ghilli which compelled even Abhishek Bachchan to perform the famous and histrionic ‘kuthu’ (in one of the commercials of a cell phone)! Maybe, the man of the hour, Himesh will get a call to do compose a Bollywood equivalent!
PS: A while ago Abhishek Bachchan was seen shaking a leg to the wild tunes of ‘Appadi Podu’ is a cell phone ad telecast in numerous satellite TV channels. The ad film became quite popular throughout the nation.
