Reports that the makers are planning to commence the shooting of the Tamil and Telugu versions in Dehradun (where the original version was shot) were wrong. Master film maker Shankar’s proposed Tamil and Telugu remakes of Aamir Khan’s smash hit 3 Idiots will start rolling from December 5 in Delhi. However, the exact location of the shooting is kept under wraps.
Vijay and Mahesh Babu will play Aamir’s role in the Tamil and Telugu versions respectively. Arya and Jeeva will play the roles played by Madhavan and Sharman Joshi in the original, while Sathyaraj will play the role of the principal. Ileana will enact Kareena’s role in both versions.
Some changes are being made in the script to suit the tastes of the South Indian audiences. Harris Jayaraj will compose the music and Manoj Paramahamsa will crank the camera.
