Gautham Vasudev Hindi Version, VTV Hindi Ready to Kick off

Gautham Vasudev Menon has started working on a Hindi remake of his superhit Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa (VTV) and Guess what he has chosen whom? He has chosen Prateik Babbar and Amy Jackson for lead pair.

Gautham is also trying out a ‘look shoot’ at the same locations where he shot VTV, including a popular seaside restaurant on ECR. A source said,

This shoot was just to get the ‘feel’ of the film. The actual shoot will take place in Mumbai from next month.”

Though, the filmmaker has made some changes in the original script to suit the taste of Bollywood audiences.  A.R. Rahman who composed the Tamil version, will compose the Hindi version also. Noted poet, story and screenplay specialist Javed Akhtar was recently in Chennai supervising the script and writing the lyrics for the Hindi version.

“Javed saab and Gautham hit off well. The lyricist’s inputs will be taken into consideration as Gautham is particular that the Hindi flick should not come across as a routine south Indian remake.”

Gautham, it looks, is clear about not repeating the mistakes he committed while remaking Minnale.
