Helmed by ace director, Gautham Vasudev Menon, the film co-produced by Gautham Menon and S. Elred Kumar, released worldwide in February 2010 and is still running successfully making it this year’s most successful Tamil film yet.
Academy award winner, A.R. Rahman, has composed the music of the film. The film was also made in Telugu as ‘Ye Maya Chesave’ and continues to run successfully in Andhra Pradesh. Young Superstar Simbu and Trisha have enacted the lead roles in Tamil while Naga Chaitanya and Samantha Ruth have enacted the lead roles in Telugu version.
The Hindi remake of the film will be directed by Gautham Menon and will have music by A.R. Rahman. The lead cast for the Hindi remake is still to be finalized. Gautham’s associate, Satish Fenn, who has earlier worked on Mani Ratnam’s ‘Guru’ and ‘Raavan’, will be associated in the Production of the Hindi Remake.
‘Vinnaithandi Varuvaayaa’ means ‘Will you Cross the Skies for Me.’ The film, a romantic musical, is about a young aspirational film-maker, who falls head over heels in love with his neighbour, a mathematics graduate. Against all odds, he must convince the girl to marry him and also convince his parents along with pursuing his dreams of becoming a filmmaker.
Commenting on the association, Gautham Menon says, “We are delighted to be working with INE and the Hinduja Group for the hindi remake of ‘Vinnaithandi Varuvaayaa’. It has been a revelation working with A.R. Rahman on the original film and we plan to re-create the same magic in the hindi remake.”
Says, Sunir Kheterpal, CEO-IN Entertainment, “‘Vinnaithandi Varuvaayaa’ is a simple yet an extremely engaging film with great music and a universal theme. INE is looking to develop and produce films with talented filmmakers and producers in Tamil, Telugu & Hindi and it is an honour to be associated with talent like Gautham Menon and A.R. Rahman in the first project itself. We look forward to working with the original Producers, Gautham and S. Elred Kumar on other projects as well.”
