Sujoy Ghosh’s critically acclaimed and Vidya Balan starrer ‘Kahaani’ is going English! Yes, the National Award winning film is being remade for Western and international audiences, by none other than YRF Entertainment.

Titled as ‘Deity’, the English version will be directed by Niels Arden Oplev ("The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"). Jose Rivera ("The Motorcycle Diaries") and Richard Regen ("Tehran") have scripted the adaptation. Excited over this latest development, Sujoy Ghosh said, "It's an incredible step by YRF. Years back Aditya Chopra had said he wanted to make ‘Kahaani’ for a global audience... I thought he was kidding. But obviously not. YRF has left no stone unturned on making the English version. The new script by Jose Rivera and Richard Regen is perfectly suited for the Western audience and what I am really looking forward is to see Niels direct this version. I am sure he will bring a unique vision to the Western version. I am totally excited about this!"

‘Deity’ will be financed and produced by YRF Entertainment, with CEO Uday Chopra serving as Producer and Jonathan Reiman, Head of Production & Development, serving as Executive Producer.

Following the lines of ‘Kahaani’, ‘Deity’ is a thriller about an American woman who goes to Kolkata in search of her missing husband. As she gets closer to the truth, she finds herself at the centre of a dangerous conspiracy.  The story unfolds in the context of a colourful, week-long festival.

The film starts production in February 2015 and will be shot on location in Kolkata.

For the records, YRF Entertainment recently financed Cannes-opener ‘Grace Of Monaco’, starring Nicole Kidman, which it produced with Pierre-Ange le Pogam’s Stone Angels and Arash Amel. YRF’s upcoming projects include Amel’s adaptation of Chris Greenhalgh’s novel, ‘Seducing Ingrid Bergman’.
