Ranbir Kapoor’s 2012 film ‘Barfi!’ was not only a wide critical success but the audience showered immense love on it as well. Besides, the film is counted as one of Ranbir Kapoor’s best performances till date and also one of the best from Anurag Basu. Such a film would certainly lure many actors and filmmakers, when it comes to remaking.

If reports are to be believed, then actor Dhanush is now keen to come up with a remade version of the film and wants to play the lead himself.

“It’s true Dhanush sir is very interested in the film’s remake. However, he can’t take up the project immediately even if the plan materialises as he is occupied with three projects, including Vetrimaaran’s highly anticipated ‘Vada Chennai’ trilogy. He has just completed work on his Hollywood project. He will soon finish the pending portion of ‘Enai Noki Paayum Thota’ and commence work on ‘Maari 2’. He also has a Bollywood project with Aanand L Rai in his kitty. If ‘Barfi!’ remake has to happen, it might go on the floors only in the second half of next year,” a source close to Dhanush told HT.

Right now, the actor is awaiting release of ‘VIP 2’ which also features Kajol.

Dhanush has earlier delivered a powerful performance in ‘Raanjhanaa’. ‘Barfi!’, indeed demands a versatile actor. If the remake at all happens, we would be very curious to know who all will be chosen for Priyanka Chopra and Ileana D’Cruz’s respective characters!
