Bengali filmmaker Srijit Mukherji‘s 2019 release, Vinci Da, is all set to be remade in Kollywood. While the screenplay is ready for the Tamil version, the cast and crew are yet to be finalised.
Dhananjayan, who has bought the Tamil remake rights, says, “Director Ram and I worked on the screenplay, and he has also written the dialogues. We collaborated over phone and video calls and it was an interesting process. The bound script is ready now and we are in the process of finalising the cast and crew.”
He adds, “Vinci Da was officially selected for screening at several international film festivals and has won awards for its story and presentation. So, I wanted to remake it in Tamil and also in Hindi. But they told me that a Bollywood studio has already purchased its Hindi remake rights. It’s a two-hero film and both the characters are very unique. There is no hero-villain differentiation, and at the end, the hero becomes the villain and the villain does something heroic. It’s a realistic film and will give you goosebumps towards the end.”
