Mani Ratnam as a director needs no introduction to Indian film industry. Most of his films are dubbed into Hindi and have been huge successes there too.
Recently, after a spate of flops, he came back to form with ‘Ok Bangaram’, which was successful in both Tamil and Telugu. Now, this movie has been remade in Hindi and is ready for release.
The hit pair of ‘Aashiqi 2’, Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor have played the lead roles and the movie has been titled ‘Ok Jaanu’. Shaad Ali is the director for this project which has music by AR Rahman and Karan Johar is the producer.
The last time that a Mani Ratnam movie was remade in Hindi was ‘Saathiya’ starring Vivek Oberoi and Rani Mukherjee. The movie directed by Mani Ratnam’s assistant was a flop there although its Telugu and Tamil counterpart, ‘Sakhi’ was a huge hit.
So, will ‘Ok Jaanu’ have better luck at the box-office?
