This Vikram and Surya starrer Tamil flick was a big hit down South and Kaushik is very excited about taking the copyrights for the same.  “I had seen Pithamagan on the big screen in 2003.

I was moved by the story and specially the character played by Vikram. Ever since then, I have wanted to  remake it and now I finally can,” says Kaushik.

Pithamagan has been  hot property for Bollywood since its release because of the strong storyline.  Vikram had won a National Award for this movie and Surya became a blockbuster star after this movie.

“For this movie, I am  going to cast two very strong actors. But I haven’t narrowed down on any names yet,” says Kaushik.  

If sources are to be believed, Kaushik wants to either cast actor Saif Ali Khan or Hrithik Roshan for the character Vikram played in the Tamil version.
