Vidyut Jammwal to replace Sunny Deol in ‘S3’ remake

[dropcap]A[/dropcap]lthough producer Jayantilal Gada bought the rights of Tamil film S3 long time ago and announced to remake the film in Hindi with Sunny Deol but looks like he has changed his mind and has offered it to Vidyut Jammwal.

“The remake of the film was announced long time ago. Gada had stated that he will be starting the shooting of the film in 2017. He had offered it to Sunny Deol and he agreed to come on board too. However, the project never really took off as Sunny was busy with other projects and Gada has now decided to move on. The producer has now offered it to Vidyut Jammwal and it may go on floor this year. But there is no confirmation on it,” a source said.

It was reported that the Sunny had liked the script and was keen to essay the character of a police officer in it. He had apparently seen the original film and was interested in the part of the remake.

The film was to be directed by cinematographer Ravi K Chandran, who has also worked on the script of the movie. The process of finalising leading lady is still on. Chandran has also worked on films like Ghajini, Ok Jaanu and others.

The original film starred Suriya, Anushka Shetty and Shruti Haasan.
