The uncertainty that prevailed over who will be donning the main lead in the 3 Idiots remake has been finally put to rest with news that it is none other than Vijay. Ever since this remake, which is being directed by Shankar, was announced, the media has been speculating that the role would either go to Vijay or Suriya.
At a time when it was expected that it will be Suriya’s cup of tea, an announcement was made that Vijay has been finalized and will be joining the camp shortly. So, what made Suriya opt out from the project? According to sources close to both the stars, it’s their friendship more than anything else that made Suriya back out of the project as his hit film Singam was initially offered to Vijay but the actor could not take it up for want of dates and eventually it landed in his court.
Sources say that he did not want this to repeat with the 3 Idiots remake and hence decided to move out. Further, it is said that Suriya shares a good rapport with Vijay and he does not want to take away yet another fine opportunity from his good friend.
