While Bollywood has forever been known to make movies ‘inspired’ by Hollywood, we now hear that the makers of the Hrithik Roshan starrer ‘Kaabil’ have been approached by 20th Century Fox for procuring the film’s remake rights. Sanjay Gupta confirmed the news in an interview as well. “It’s true that Fox, through Tomas Jegeus (President, Fox International Productions) has approached Hrithik. Even though the developments are too premature to talk about at this moment, it is an honour for the team. What is also exciting is that Kaabil has been declared the best film of 2017 via an online poll. So, it’s a double win for us.”
Remaking and being inspired from Hollywood is a common thing in the Hindi film industry but ‘Kaabil’ would be the first Hindi film to be on the other side Rumour has it that the producers are thinking about casting Hrithik in the lead role and that is damn exciting.
Ironically, when ‘Kaabil’ was released, critics pointed out that Gupta had drawn inspiration from Hollywood’s ‘Blind Fury’ (1989) and even borrowed inspiration from the Korean super hit film, ‘Broken’ (2014).
