Here is a super exclusive scoop for our readers. Director Puri Jagannadh is contemplating on remaking one of his most iconic films in Hindi. He is trying to pitch the idea of remake of his film Idiot which made Ravi Teja a star overnight. And guess who the director is thinking for the remake, none other than the current youth sensation Ranbir Kapoor.
Well the director is currently in Mumbai in talks with the star of Barfi for this remake and sources say it is almost on the verge of being finalized. Ranbir Kapoor has recently green lighted a masala film, Besharam, with director of Dabangg, Abhinav Kashayap and he wants to follow it up with another masala venture and thatâ€™s where this Idiot remake comes in.
Incidentally almost a decade ago director Puri Jagannadh had actually started Idiot remake in Hindi with Zayed Khan in the lead. Even the shoot of the film was started but the actor left it mid way to work with Shahrukh Khan on Main Hoon Naa.
