The latest buzz is that the hit 2012 film "Kahaani" is to be remade in Tamil and Telugu, with actress Nayanthara stepping into Vidya Balan’s role. The remake is to be directed by Sekhar Kammula, who has been behind a number of award-winning Telugu films.
The original version of the film was well-received by critics and audiences alike, and leading lady Vidya Balan was praised for her portrayal of her character, Vidya Bagchi. The actress, who is originally from South India, picked up the Best Actress award at the Colors Screen Awards and the Best Actress award at the Filmfare Awards for her role in "Kahaani".
Whether Nayanthara is the right choice for the role remains to be seen. The actress has starred in numerous films across the South Indian film industries, and has picked up many an award. However, the role in "Kahaani" is different to anything she has done before, unlike Vidya Balan, whose roles are always very different and often challenging.
What do you think about Nayanthara playing Vidya Balan’s role? Do you think another actress would be better suited?
