The Hindi film Pari, a supernatural horror flick, is all set to be remade in Tamil. The film, starring Anushka Sharma in the lead role, made it to the silver screens on March 2 this year to positive reviews. The film also turned out to be a commercial success.
According to reports doing rounds, Pari will soon be remade in Tamil and the strong contender to reprise Anushka Sharma’s role in it is Nayanthara. Interestingly, Nayan herself has a good share of horror flicks to her credit including Dora and Maya.
However, sources close to the actor claim that she is not interested in starring in horror films right now and is busy concentrating in other genres. The talented actor is busy with a number of films including the Telugu biopic Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy in which she shares the screen space with Tollywood megastar Chiranjeevi and the heroine-oriented Kolamaavu Kokila, a Tamil film which is being directed Nelson Dhilip Kumar.
Pari is all set to hit the screens in the Russian market on April 19. Pari, directed by debutant Prosit Roy, has been bankrolled by Anushka Sharma and Kamesh Sharma under the banners Clean Slate Films, KriArj Entertainment and Kyta Productions.
It has been penned by Prosit Roy and Abhishek Bannerjee. While the film revolves around Anushka Sharma, the star cast also had Parambrata Chatterjee, Ritabhari Chakraborty, Rajat Kapoor and Mansi Multani in pivotal roles.
The background score for Pari was composed by Ketan Sodha while the songs have been scored by Anupam Roy. The cinematography was handled by Jishnu Bhattacharjee and the editing was done by Manas Mittal. Pari was made on a budget of Rs 18 crores and its box office collections stood at Rs 40 crores making it a commercial success.
With reports that Nayan may not be a part of the remake, film buffs wonder who would bag the role.
