The race between superstars Rajnikant and Shah Rukh Khan, to reach the theatres first, has been won by the Tamil veteran.
And now, there are fears that the makers of KUSELAN will dub it in Hindi and release it before SRK's BILLOO BARBER, the Hindi remake of the same story. But Priyadarshan, who is busy finishing the Hindi version with Shah Rukh, is unperturbed.
KUSELAN, the Tamil version of the Malayalam super-hit KATHA PARAYUMPOL, which deals between the relationship of a superstar and a barber, has made it to the top of the box office charts.
According to Priyadarshan, the original Malayalam film, written by Sreenivasan, is very different from both KUSELAN and BILLOO BARBER.
But the question is: Would the contract prevent the makers of KUSELAN from finding any loopholes in it to release the film in a dubbed Hindi version? If they do, would it affect BILLOO BARBER?
