Is the Remake Raja’s — M. Raja and his brother Jayam Ravi going to do the Tamil remake of Lage Raho Munnabhai for Gemini Film Circuit?

Already Gemini Film Circuit (GFC) has announced that they hold the remake rights for the entire south (Tamil, Telugu and Kannada). Remember that they had produced all the three remakes of its original Munnabhai MBBS as Vasoolraja MBBS, Shankardada MBBS and Uppidada MBBS with Kamal Hassan, Chiranjeevi and Upendra respectively?

GFC has already started work on the Telugu version with Chiranjeevi, Vidya Balan and directed by Prabhu Deva. Now the big question is- Who will do the Tamil version? Earlier Kamal did not show an inclination to do the second part but the latest we hear is that he has been offered a whopping Rs 8 Crore as salary, (Rs 1 Crore more than his Dashaavtar salary)!

Meanwhile Raja has been signed to direct the Tamil remake. Earlier Vasoolraja MBBS was directed by Saran who says that Kamal will be doing his next film for his production company! The buzz in Kollywood is that if Kamal does not do the film, then Raja has asked his brother Ravi to do the lead role.
