Vivek in Nagesh's role in 'Neerkumizhi' remake!

Director Selvaa of Naan Avan Illai fame, is working on three films. While one will be an original, two other will be remakes, the first a remake of Hindi film 'Malamaal Weekly' and the second will be a remake of 'Neerkumizhi', a yesteryear blockbuster by K Balachander.

"I want to remake this classic by Balachander with Vivek in the lead role, the original saw veteran Nagesh in the lead. My producers will be acquiring the rights shortly. Its really important to choose films that today's young haven't watched for remakes so that they find it fresh and avoid comparison", says Selva.

The first script which is an original will be set in Fiji island and boast of debutants in the lead, while the remake of Malamaal Weekly will see young actors in the lead unlike the Hindi version that saw ace actors Paresh Rawal and Om Puri.

Do you think Vivek can do justice to the role essayed by Nagesh? It will be interesting to watch Vivek in this film especially since his sense of comedy is compared to that of the latter's many a time by critics.
