According to the on-going buzz, Kabali and Poshto will have a Hindi remake. The makers of Poshto keenly look to star Amitabh Bachchan, The Big B, in the movies. Poshto, released earlier this year, was critically-acclaimed by the public. Soumitra Chatterjee, Jisshu Sengupta and Mimi Chakraborty starred in the film. Reports were saying that Hindi remake is in progress. Furthermore, Sujoy Ghosh will provide his valuable inputs.
On the other hand, Rajnikanth’s Kabali had full houses, but its Hindi version did not perform up to the mark. Even after a poor show, Bollywood legend, Amitabh Bachchan will do a Hindi remake of Kabali. In a recent interview, Amitabh Bachchan said:
“Rajini is phenomenal. The largest, the best and truly the boss. Outside of Tamil Nadu, people have no idea what he is all about. The adulation, the following is incomparable. We are friends and colleagues. I abhor epithets, but for him, I will make exceptions, for he is truly exceptional.”
“The reason Rajini’s Tamil films don’t do well when dubbed in Hindi is because they are very culture-specific. Kabali is set in the Tamil community in Malaysia. The flavor, culture and dialogues are all particular to the Tamil community.”
Amitabh Bachchan and Rajnikanth share quite a bit of History. With Big B’s appearance in the Rajni-starred Andha Kanoon, the two became close friends and have remained close friends ever since. Amitabh Bachchan, inspiring Rajnikanth’s modesty, said:
“Look where he came from and what he has become. Sheer hard work, talent and the belief that he could do it. And he did! A fantastic example for the youth. Despite his extraordinary career, he has remained a simple, down-to-earth person.”
Furthermore, talking about Sir Rajnikanth’s life, Amitabh Bachchan said:
“Do you know, a Fiat car he bought when he had attained his early success remained with him till recently. Rajini is a terrific company on the sets and a fine gentleman. He’s religious, traditional and charitable.”
Lastly, Big B complemented his parenting skills, remarking:
“For me, the way your offspring turns out is the truest reflection of your achievements.”
We will surely look forward to seeing Amitabh Bachchan on the screen because he is just that good. Every movie he does, showcase his talent, skills and tells us why he is a living legend.
