Despite being busy directing the Suriya starrer Matraan, KV Anand is focused on remaking Ko in Hindi. Producers RS Infotainment were in talks with a leading star in Bollywood to play the lead role in this remake but that did not materialize.
Following this, Ranbir Kapoor was approached for the role essayed by Jiiva in the original and he had agreed to join hands with KV Anand. Ranbir understands that Tamil remakes are selling like hot cakes in Bollywood and it would be a good idea to star in a remake.
The film is currently remade in Tamil as ‘Nanban’ by helmer S. Shankar and features Vijay (Aamir Khan), Jeeva (Sharman Joshi), Srikanth (Madhavan), Sathyaraj (Boman Irani) and Ileana D’Cruz (Kareena Kapoor) in lead.
