That Priyadarshan's BILLOO BARBER is a remake of the Malayalam super-hit, KADHA PARAYUMBOL, is something that we had told you long back, when the film was on the verge of being announced. And similarly its old news that superstar Rajnikant's KUSELAN (which too is the remake of KADHA PARAYUMBOL) released early this month, to a bumper response at most places.
So are we rehashing old media reports? No, not exactly! The reason that we are going into flashback mode is because there is news that the Shah Rukh Khan-Irrfan Khan starrer, BILLOO BARBER may see a few changes, now that KUSELAN has been liked by the masses. Actually Priyadarshan has been observing the reactions and reports of KUSELAN minutely and may go in for a few changes which might even involve re-shooting. Since the scheduled date for the release of BILLOO BARBER is 24th October, Priyan has enough time on hand to go ahead with the changes, if any.
Meanwhile for those who are not aware, BILLOO BARBER has Irrfan Khan playing the title role and Shah Rukh Khan essaying an extended guest appearance, a role of about 45 minutes with 2-3 item numbers.
Well, hopefully that should be enough to satisfy the countless fans of Bollywood's global superstar when BILLOO BARBER releases on Diwali!
