Is Kai Po Che being remade in Tamil?

Abhishek Kapoor’s inspirational flick which has garnered both critical acclaim and commercial success might now have a Tamil version

With Kollywood personalities showering praise on Kai Po Che, the latest Bollywood hit based on Chetan’s Bhagat’s novel The 3 Mistakes of My Life, the buzz is that the movie will be remade in Tamil.

The film is distributed by UTV Motion Pictures, which has a strong presence in Kollywood too. G Dhananjayan, who heads the Southern division of UTV, wrote on his microblogging page, ‘Kai Po Che is one of the finest films on the life of three friends, like Nanban. It will certainly work if we have a good director + cast :-)’

Also, popular director Lingusamy, who watched the film recently, tweeted, ‘Kai Po Che – Hindi Movie. A good film after a long gap. Cinematography, Music, Direction all good.’

It is expected that UTV itself will produce the Tamil version too. Remember it is currently producing Settai, which is the Tamil remake of Hindi hit Delhi Belly.

Directed by Abhishek Kapoor, Kai Po Che has music by Amit Trivedi and lyrics by Swanand Kirkire. Sushant Singh Rajput, Raj Kumar Yadav and Amit Sadh star as the three main protagonists, while Amrita Puri plays the female lead.
