Remember Aditya Roy Kapoor? The young, curly-haired actor, seen in films like "Action Replayy" and "Guzaarish", will soon be relaunched in Gautham Menon's tri-lingual film project.

The actor had vanished almost to the point of non-existence, not answering messages or phone calls. But now it turns out he has been busy in the south shooting for a Tamil-Telugu-Hindi movie, being directed by Menon.

Menon, who is in the news for his new Hindi film "Ek Deewana Tha", confirmed the news.

"Yes, I am working with Aditya Roy Kapoor in a film that I am making in three languages - Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. The Hindi version with Aditya is called 'Assi Nabbe Poorey Sau'," he said.

About Kapoor, Menon said: "I spotted him on the location for Vipul Shah's 'Action Replayy'. I immediately knew he was right for 'Assi Nabbe Poorey Sau'."

Menon has apparently shot almost the entire film already. The movie also features Samantha Ruth Prabhu.

While Kapoor plays the lead in the Hindi version of this adventure-comedy-drama, Tamil superstar Jeeva and Telugu star Nani play the lead in the other two versions of the film.

Interestingly, Samantha, whom Menon introduced in Telugu film "Ye Maaya Chesave" in 2010, features in all three versions of the film.

"I already have three different heroes in three different languages to deal with. In addition, three heroines would have been impossible to handle. So Samantha stars in all three languages," said Menon.

The director says shooting a tri-lingual is like making three different films.

"I do one shot with Aditya and then the same shot with Jeeva and Nani. We go through every shot three times over in exactly the same way. I've never done a film simultaneously in three languages," he said.

However, Menon is worried about other things for now.

"At the moment, my full focus is on the release of 'Ek Deewana Tha'. It's a simple, old-fashioned love story," he said.

    One thing for sure... tamil version (VTV) was the first one for which tamarai penned the lyrics first... the telugu version adapted the same lyrics..but in hindi?! its so bad... only the first two lines of 'Hosannah' is translated from tamil...

    I am so unhappy with the lyrics of hindi version :(
