Anushka Sharma starrer Pari may have not won hearts at the box office but that is not stopping others from already planning remakes of it. The film is reported to be remade in Tamil. After its release, it was much applauded for its amalgamation of horror and thriller and this seems to have caught the attention of filmmakers down south.
The possibility of a Tamil remake was announced online by film trade analyst Ramesh Bala. He tweeted that a Tamil producer has offered a good deal for the remake of the Prosit Roy directorial. In the film, Sharma plays the role of an orphaned adult who is also being head hunted by a group of witch hunters. They allege that Sharma is a child of the devil and thus needs to be finished off. And that is why supernatural elements have been added to give the film its horror film.
Pari despite being well received in India had been banned in Pakistan. The film’s producer Prernaa Arora of KriArj Entertainment had said, “evil has no religion" and that "how do we explain why they would think of Pari as anti-Islamic?". She had added, “They (the Pakistan censor board) seem to be taking random decisions. How do we explain why they would think of Pari as anti-Islamic? Evil, which the film portrays, has no religion.”
Sharma who also co-produced the film from her home production Clean Slate Production, is currently shooting for Yash Raj Film’s Sui Dhaaga opposite Varun Dhawan. The movie is slated for a September 28 release.
