Thiruvananthapuram: Debutant director Alphonse
Putharen, who impressed with his simple yet quirky narration in
Tamil-Malayalam bilingual film Neram, will soon remake the movie in Hindi.
The director is currently in talks with a few leading Bollywood
producers and hopes to make an official announcement about the
project and its cast and crew details soon.
Talking to IANS, Alphonse Putharen said, "I plan to direct the
Hindi version as well, but at the moment we are in talks with few
producers who have expressed interest in the remake. I have few
actors that I would like to cast, but can't divulge information
with regards to it." The director added, "We are likely to hear
from the producers soon and only after that will I know when the
remake will go on the floors."
Made on a shoestring budget of Rs 1.5 crore, the film
Neram features debutants Nivin Pauly and Nazriya
Nizam in the lead roles. Released on May 17, the movie is still
running to packed houses. The premise of the story is that there
are good and bad times in our lives and that both have important
parts to play. It also stars a host of other actors, such as John
Vijay, Simhaa, Nassar, Thambi Ramaiah, among many more.
