Mumbai, May 14 Shahid Kapoor has been approached to play the main lead in the Hindi remake of the Tamil blockbuster “Vettai”, but the actor says he is not sure about the project as the makers haven’t reverted to him with a suitable dialogue writer for the movie.
Chennai-based director N. Linguswamy is expected to wield the megaphone for the remake which will be produced by UTV Motion Pictures. Rumours are rife that Ali Zafar may replace him in the remake.
When asked about it, Shahid told IANS: “They approached me for the remake of ‘Vettai’. I have asked them to get a Hindi dialogue writer. They didn’t get back to me on this. So I don’t know about that. Let’s see.”
The Tamil version of “Vettai” was also directed by Linguswamy and it featured R. Madhavan, Arya, Sameera Reddy and Amala Paul.
Shahid’s last release “Mausam” failed to impress the viewers. Now he is looking forward to the release of “Teri Meri Kahaani”, which is coming out June 22.
