What Ram Gopal Varma couldn't do, Pritish Nandy has managed to do. His company Pritish Nandy Communications has obtained the rights to remake Ramesh Sippy's Sholay.
"Yes, we've signed a deal for the official remake. But we aren't doing a feature. It'll be animation versions of Sholay. We are doing a prequel and sequel to Sholay in animation format," informs Pritish Nandy whose production company is all set to make sequels of two of their earlier films Sujoy Ghosh's Jhankaar Beatsand Saket Chowdhary's Pyaar Ke Side Effects.
Adds the entertainment baron, "It's a rather substantial deal. We'll be fine-tuning the details in the coming weeks and initiating work on the concepts and screenplays. After that we'll cast for the voices and then look for the director and crew. That's how we work at PNC."
