It has been earlier reported that the Malayalam movie Shutter will be getting a Hindi remake. The movie, which was directed by Joy Mathew, will get its remake by the Neram movie director Alphonse Puthren. The director has said that Prithviraj might be a part of the remake of Shutter.
The cast and crew of the film is not yet confirmed. "The casting will be finalised by the second week of October. The scripting of the Hindi adaptation is over, and we will start working on the film as soon as the casting is done," he says.
Alphonse says that he wanted to do the Shutter remake because he wanted a subject which anyone in India could relate to. "I wanted to upgrade myself as a director, and do something with more reach. So I was on the lookout for something to do in Hindi, and that's when I came across Shutter," he says.
Alphonse says that it was his sole decision to remake Shutter in Hindi. He has taken intense care with the script of the remake so that it would please his Hindi audience. Adding on, he also says that all those who have seen the Malayalam version of the film is sure to like the Hindi remake too.
