Though there were quite a lot of names in the news recently only Ajith finally did a legendary role of yester years in ‘Billa’. Now Dhanush is playing ‘Maapillai’ Rajini in another. Manoj Bharatiraja was said to play ‘Sigappu Rojakkal’ Kamal and Shantanu was said to be doing his father in the remake of ‘Puthiyavarpugal’ and so on.
But all of bubbles were busted by the concerned people themselves and there was an unnatural lull for sometime. Now, again there is news cropping up.
Reliable sources say Shantanu Bhagyaraj is gearing up to play a legendary role perfected by the great Kamal Haasan. The sources reveal Shantanu is going to play the lover boy Kamal in the remake of the classic 1976 hit Manmathaleelai .
