There was news that Madhavan is reluctant to act in the Tamil remake of the Malayalam film Charlie.
Malayalam film Charlie was released for Christmas season 2015. Dulquer Salman, Parvathi Menon, Aparna Gopinath and Nedumudi Venu had starred in the film. Martin Prakkat had directed the film. Charlie was produced by Finding Cinemas.
There was an immense response for this Malayalam film amongst the youngsters and critics. The film yielded great profits. There was a tough competition amongst the producers to acquire the remake rights.
One of the famous Bollywood production house Pramod Films acquired the Tamil remake rights of Charlie. Talks were held with the leading actors for the Dulquer Salman role. It was also mentioned that Parvathi Menon who donned the female lead role will also don the same in the Tamil remake version.
Talks are also being held with Madhavan for the Dulquer Salman but it is understood that he has so far not given his nod.
