Akshay Kumar, who is basking in the success of his latest film Special 26, says he would love to remake the film for regional cinema. Directed by Neeraj Pandey, Special 26, a heist drama starring Akshay Kumar, Anupam Kher, Manoj Bajpai in the lead roles, garned good response after its release on February 8.
"I would love to remake it. But I haven't thought of it yet. If I get a good director I would love to remake it," Akshay said during a media interaction today. The actor is running two production houses - Hari Om Entertainment and Grazing Goats. Through the latter he is backing regional films - Punjabi and Marathi language. Even director Neeraj Pandey said that he has been receiving offers for remaking Special 26 in other languages.
"Since Friday evening I have been receiving calls for remaking the film. People have been asking for remake rights. I have been receiving queries but can't talk about them," Neeraj said. "These are decisions that need to be taken at a different level. We need to consult... do it at the right time," he said.
The film is inspired by a real life daring heist dating back to the 80s in which some unknown people posing as CBI officers executed a daylight income tax raid and decamped with jewellery worth lakhs.
