AndhaDhun has managed to steal the limelight from other Bollywood films of 2018. Even after more than 100 days of its release, the film is still drawing crowds by dozens at many theatres.
Sriram Raghavan’s AndhaDhun has received praise from all over and has proved to be another feather in Ayushmann’s already blooming career.
The success of a movie usually means a sequel or a remake, and that is exactly what has been the talk of the town.
Well, at least there is one actor who, like us, feels the same.
Siddharth Narayan, of Rang De Basanti fame, on Wednesday, posted a question to the audience whether they would want to see a remake of Sriram Raghavan’s thriller in Tamil. His tweet reads, “Quick vote – since it’s on the table already, how many of you want to see me remake this lovely film? I’m very serious:) #Andhadhun @ayushmannk #sriramraghavan #Classic.”

In response to his tweet, here is how the fans reacted:
I’m sure you’ll do a wonderful job remaking it but might I suggest a crazy idea? How about a gender swapped version for the remake? A female lead would give it story a whole new twist. Also Aravind Swamy in the role of Tabu!! Just a thought 😊

Nayantara should replace Tabu !

“lovely film” being the key word. I say it should stay untouched. India needs to encourage pan India viewing, for South and North, and letting the original travel is a great way to do that.

Not even kidding but when I was discussing the film with my sister, we spoke about who should play the lead role if remade in Tamil and we literally said it should be Siddharth.

The audience seems to be really serious about the prospect as many of them suggested that since Tabu and Radhika Apte have experience of working in the south Indian film industry, they should return for the remake of the film.
Not just the audience but Ayushmann Khurrana too seems to be all for it as he responded to Siddharth with the tweet, “Go for itmachaan!”
Go for it machaan! 🧡😎 https://t.co/BroTt8vjaz
