Alphonse Putharen in talks with B-Town producers for Neram remake
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.
