Acclaimed Bollywood director Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who won the National Film Award this year for his magnum opus ‘Bajirao Mastani, ’, is reportedly planning to remake classic Telugu film ‘Manam’.
Director Vikram Kumar, who has made a stunning film like ‘Manam’ with the three generations of Akkineni heroes, has revealed that while he was shooting Suriya’s ‘24’ in Mumbai, he met Bhansali and discussed about possible remake of ‘Manam’. Nothing is finalized yet.
Incidentally, Vikram Kumar had earlier tried to remake ‘Manam’ in Tamil with Suriya, Karthi and their father Sivakumar but Suriya liked the story of ‘24’ than ‘Manam’. Hence ‘24’ went on floors first. Still, there is a possibility of ‘Manam’ being made in Tamil with Suriya’s family.
Meanwhile Bhansali is making plans to produce the Hindi remake of ‘Manam’ with Vikram Kumar directing it. Choosing a perfect cast would a tough task though.
