While a new argument is raging over whether Vijay’s ‘’Kavalan’ is a real hit or not, the popularity of the sensitive love story by Siddique is growing without barriers. Siddique, himself wouldn’t have thought that his Malayalam ‘Bodygurad’ will go places in all languages.
After the success in Malayalam, ‘Boduguard’ became ‘Kavalan’ in Tamil with Vijay and Asin. Whatever the trade may say, the Tamil film resurrected the sagging morale of Vijay and his fans after consecutive failures.
Now ‘Kavalan’ is progressing in Hindi as ‘My Love Story’ with Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor in the lead. Siddique is doing it for the third time in Hindi as well
Latest news is that work has started for the Telugu version of the film and Siddique will direct it this time too. Venkatesh and Anushka will essay the roles of Vijay and Asin for Andhra fans.
Siddique is closer to record books for doing the same film in four languages with in a span of two years. If he directs the Kannada remake also, when it happens, then he will surely be there.
