Malayalam superstar Prithviraj Sukumaran's solo blockbuster "Ennu Ninte Moideen" has been doing tremendous business worldwide even after 50 days of theatrical run.

The film, based on the real-life love story of BP Moideen and Kanchanamala in the backdrop of Kozhikode in the 1960s, has been received well by the Kerala audience. RS Vimal, the film's director, had recently announced his plans to direct a big-budget Tamil remake of the film after reworking the script to suit the Tamil audience.

Even though he hasn't finalised the film's cast, rumours mills have churned out Tamil superstar Dhanush and Samantha's names for the lead roles. Responding to the news, the director said he had not even given a thought to casting the "Velaiyilla Pattathari" actor for the upcoming project.

"I have not even thought about casting Dhanush, or anyone else for that matter. I don't know who starts these rumours," said Vimal, according to the Times of India.

Meanwhile, it has to be noted that the Prithviraj and Parvathy-starrer is still ruling the box office in Kerala even after the release of Mammootty's "Pathemari", multi-starrer films like "Amar Akbar Anthony", "Lord Livingstone 7000 Kandi", Mohanlal's "Kanal", and women-centric film "Rani Padmini", among others.

"Ennu Ninte Moideen" has reportedly grossed more than Rs 32.67 crore with a net amount of Rs 25.56 crore, and the all-India gross crossed Rs 37.50 crore within 42 days.
