‘Phas Gaye Re Obama’ in South Remake

If Bollywood filmmakers are making remake of South Indian movies, then makers of Phas Gaye Re Obama are must be on cloud nine as renowned South Indian filmmaker, Subhash Kapoor has has requested them for the remake rights.

When asked from Subhash Kapoor, he also confirmed it,

“Yes it is true. Sayed Ayub, who runs a prominent production house in the south, has approached us with an offer to remake the film in Telegu.

We will finalise the terms and conditions by next week. I strongly feel that while the basic concept and the storyline of the film are fresh, the film’s simplicity can be adapted in any language.

The story of a millionaire getting kidnapped and people making money out of it can fit in any language and culture.”

And Kapoor believes that his film has bagged this opportunity without any external support. He says,

“Other small films this year had big names behind them. Udaan had an Anurag Kashyap, Peepli live had an Aamir Khan, Tere Bin laden had Manmohan Shetty and LSD had Ekta Kapoor. That our film will have a Telegu remake is very encouraging.”
