Bollywood has always been inspired by Hollywood and remakes of movies has gone into a long list. But now we hear that Tomas Jegeus, President of Fox International Productions has approached Hrithik Roshan to acquire the rights to the movie for a remake of Kabil. It is a great honor to the makers of movie and Bollywood that the movie will have a remake.
Kabil has been produced by Hrithik’s dad Rakesh Roshan and music is given by Rajesh Roshan. The movie casts Yami Gautam, Ronit Roy and Rohit Roy in lead roles. The story of the movie revolves around the two blind people who are in love with each other and an incidence changes their life which resulted in the death of Supriya Sharma(Yami Gautam). The movie had a clash with Shahrukh Khan’s Raees. It had a decent Box Office collection of 196.74 crores.
