Gautham Menon's Ek Deewana Tha (Hindi VTV) In theaters from January 
Director Gautham Vasudev Menon is all set to release the Hindi version of Vinnai Thaandi Varuvaaya in January next year.
Titled Ek Deewana Tha, the film has Prateik Babbar and Amy Jackson playing the lead roles. Prateik and Amy have reprised the roles essayed with aplomb by Simbu and Trisha (respectively) in the original Tamil version.

VTV was a huge success in Tamil and was a significant hit in the careers of both Simbu and Trisha. In fact, the film's success made many producers and directors believe that Simbu can portray any kind of roles on-screen provided the script is good. "I have made several changes in the characterization and characters in the Hindi version. While Simbu was always in an excited mood, Prateik would be a 'soft' character with no signs of tension.

"We have show Prateik and Amy in love and pouring out their emotions for each other. Amy has gone a step further than Trisha did in the original and has given an amazing performance," says Menon about his debut directorial venture in Hindi. Unit sources say that Prateik and Amy's reported off-screen romance helped them bond well on the sets to display on-screen love.

Menon also plans to visit Mumbai and Delhi to watch the film along with the audiences to know their reaction to the film. The film is likely to be released on 13th January next year. Menon is also making the Tamil film Needhanae En Ponvasandham starring Jiiva and Samantha in lead roles.
