‘Sadma’ remake to have Hollywood version too: Filmmaker

Mumbai, April 12 (IANS) Ad-filmmaker Lloyd Baptista, who is working on a remake of Kamal Haasan and Sridevi starrer “Sadma”, says that a Hollywood version of the same will also be shot next year.

“Yes, I will first shoot the ‘Sadma’ remake in Hindi and then next year I will shoot it in English. We are simultaneously locking the starcast for both the films and both the films will have a different star cast,” Baptista told IANS.

“For the Hollywood version we will have an Indian actress and a Hollywood actor. The Indian actress will be someone who works in Hollywood, but I can’t give out the names right now. It’s one of the actresses who is working abroad,” he added.

“Sadma”, which was a remake of the Tamil film “Moondram Pirai”, featured Sridevi in the role a young woman who regresses into childhood after a head injury.

Baptista also said that he had earlier spoken to actress Kareena Kapoor Khan, but she was busy with “Ki & Ka”.

“Mukesh Chabra is currently helping us with the casting and I had a chat with Kareena Kapoor Khan for the same but she was busy with ‘Ki & Ka’. It’s very difficult to get the right cast who can do justice to Kamal and Sridevi’s role. We are in talks with the A-list actors for the remake,” he added.
