While Sanjay Leela Bhansali is gearing up for the release of his upcoming magnum opus 'Bajirao Mastani' buzz is that the film-maker is planning to remake Subhash Ghai's blockbuster 'Khalnayak' which starred Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit Nene and Jackie Shroff. The film was a huge box-office hit.
Reportedly Bhansali has offered Rs 9 crore to Ghai for the rights of the film. Earlier, Salman Khan bought the rights of Ghai’s 'Hero' (1983) for close to Rs 7 crore, and 'Ram Lakhan’s (1989) rights were bought by Karan Johar for around Rs 5 crore.
A Hindustan Times report quoted Ghai as saying, "Many producers have approached me for the rights of Khalnayak. Sanjay also expressed his wish to remake the film. We had to negotiate the price. But he got busy." He further added, "Once I sell the rights of my film, I don’t interfere. I sold the rights of Hero to Salman Khan and Ram Lakhan to Karan Johar too. They are all filmmakers and know how to modernise the film.”
Wow! Now that's some interesting piece of news! Whom would you guys like to see in this modern remake?
