Shahrukh & Ranbir to Come Together in Bengali Film Remake

Imagine who are coming together! Two heartthrobs are coming together in a remake of Bengali film, Autograph. Well, I am talking about Shahrukh Khan and Ranbir Kapoor, who are coming together  in a remake of Bengali film, originally played by Prosenjeet.

Producer Madhu Mantena, who was busy focusing on the release of his two big Hindi films — Jhootha Hi Sahi and Rakht Charitra, is planning to come with Hindi version of the film after seeing a huge success of the film in Bengal. The Hindi version will be directed by Srijit Mukherjee, who also directed the Bengali version.

The producer is also ready to make some changes in the script to accommodate SRK’s though, who obviously cannot play a ‘fading’ superstar. The filmmaker says,

“I think the era of remakes from regional languages into Hindi is back.  We just need to make sure the regional flavour is not lost in Hindi. Ghajini was a smash-hit Telugu to Hindi remake. I am talking to at least five major Tamil-Telugu blockbuster directors about making their own films in Hindi.

As much as we would have liked Prosenjeet to play the superstar in the Hindi adaptation, it won’t work. We need a pan-India superstar.” So SRK it is? “I’m not saying anything at the moment”

In the Bengali film, Prosenjeet paid a tribute to the ultimate Bengali superstar — Uttam Kumar, whereas Shahrukh will portray  Amitabh Bachchan’s character.
