Sensitive filmmaker Sekhar Kummula’s last outing was ‘Anamika’ starred Nayanthara in lead role. The thriller drama was actually a remake of Vidya Balan’s Hindi movie ‘Kahaani’. While Hindi version was a blockbuster, Telugu was a flop. Major reason for diverse result is highlight episodes of Kahaani went missing in kick with Anamika.
“It’s an incredible step by Yash Raj Films. Years back, Aditya Chopra had said he wanted to make ‘Kahaani’ for a global audience … I thought he was kidding – but obviously not. YRF has left no stone unturned on making the English version,” Ghosh had said in a statement.
