Victor Bannerjee is currently shooting a Bengali-Oriya film Kali-Shankar that's a remake of Rakesh Roshan's blockbuster Karan Arjun on the theme of reincarnation. Interestingly, Rakesh Roshan isn't the least aware of this regional bi-lingual!
The most interesting part of the unauthorized bi-lingual is the way the original is being turned upside-down in the remake.
Victor who plays the protagonist in the Bengali version, elaborates, "Director Prashant Nanda has turned the story around. Instead of being the story of the offsprings (played by Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan in the original) this is the story a pair of grandchildren and their grandfather's revenge on their wrongdoers. I play the grandfather, naturally." The film has a lot of stick-wielding action.
"After a long time I'm doing a masala film and that too in two languages. I haven't done a masala film for a long time."
