Tamil 'Boys' to now speak Hindi!

Popular Tamil director Shankar (of Endhiran/Robot fame) is definitely not new to Bollywood. His earlier works Indian and Anniyan were dubbed in Hindi as Hindustani (Kamal Hasan in a double role) and Aparichit (Raavan’s Dev/Vikram with a multiple personality disorder). In fact he had even remade his Mudhalvan as the Anil Kapoor-Rani Mukherjee starrer Nayak. And after the super success of Rajnikanth’s Robot, Shankar has decided to quickly cash in on it by dubbing one of his earlier movies: Boys.

Boys is a 2003 Tamil movie starring the cute Siddharth and bubbly Genelia. For a director known for his message-injected movies, this one was a complete youth based masala movie - in fact both the actors had kick-started their filmi careers from this movie. Shankar, who wanted to release the dubbed version of this movie for quite some time has finally almost finished the dubbing.
