Remember Mathu Vadalara, the Tollywood film that had everyone sitting up and taking notice last year? Well, the comic thriller has joined the list of recent Telugu films to be remade in Bollywood.
Apparently, the Ritesh Rana debut directorial has even caught the attention of the Hindi-speaking movie-goers. The buzz is that Ritesh, who had directed the original, will also helm the remake.
“Producer Cherry garu and I always believed that the Mathu Vadalara script has the potential to be told on a larger scale. So we had initially thought of making the film in Hindi too. The appreciation and acclaim the Telugu version reinforced our confidence in the script, and we decided to narrate it to a wider audience,” explains Ritesh, who has just begun the draft of the Hindi version.
“Although the script has universal appeal, we are trying to tweak it to suit the sensibilities of the Hindi audience, just to make sure that we tighten all the loose ends whilst retaining the core emotional appeal. So I am trying to give a new spin to the revised narrative,” the director explains.
