Super news. Bollywood beign inspired by Hollywood is a thing of past. First timer Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan's 'Lahore' has achieved the distinction that many seasoned filmmakers will take years to make.
'Lahore' is the first Indian film to be approached by a major Hollywood studio for a remake. Hollywood Gang, the production house behind hits like Gerard Butler starrer ''300'' and Robert De Niro and Drew Barrymore starrer 'Everybody's Fine', has approached Chauhan to acquire all the rights for the remake.
There is a probability that Sanjay himself might go on directing the film with an all-new-cast from Hollywood, and it is believed to have an amalgamation of some big names there.
"Yes it is true that we have been approached by Mr.Scott Carr, Director of Development of Hollywood Gang Production House. I would say it is an honor for me and my film that after having so much of accolade from all over, Lahore will now be remade in Hollywood." Said Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan.
He also added that his movie itself had an international crew like Wayne Sharpe who did the background score, Tony Leung, the action director, International Vocalist Lisbeth Scott who sung for the film, and Rob Miller, who served as the Sports Consultant.
"I have been requested to sell all the rights for remake of the film and yes there might be a possibility of myself directing the film again, with an all new International cast and crew, which will a big challenge and responsibility for me." is what Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan says on this historical achievement.
Though many Indian Actors have worked in Hollywood and vice versa and many Hollywood films have had their remakes here in Bollywood, but for an Indian film to have its remake there is a big achievement for the Indian Entertainment Industry. Now what is to be seen is whether Hollywood Gang, a production house known for making big films, will have the original script restored in the remake or use the cinematic liberty to match the tastes of Foreign Audiences?
But if you ask Sanjay Chauhan he firmly says, "I would hand over the rights only on one condition that my script is not tampered with, whether I direct the film there or anyone else does. I know that my script is very original and I don't think it requires any changes as it is a universal subject."
