Hrithik Roshan's Kaabil not only set the cash register ringing here, but looks like it has also left an impact on Hollywood. According to a Mid-Day report, the film will soon have a Hollywood remake as Hrithik has been approached for the rights by Fox International Productions. We hear that Duggu is yet to give a final go-ahead, but he is certainly in talks with the president of Fox, Tomas Jegeus, who is keen on the project.
When Sanjay Gupta, the director of Kaabil, was asked about the development, he told Mid-Day, "It's true that Fox, through Tomas Jegeus (president, Fox International Productions), has approached Hrithik. The developments are too premature to talk about at this moment, but yes, it is an honour for the team."
According to a source, as quoted in the report, Hrithik got a call from Tomas before he headed to New York recently (Not for the IIFA though). The actor apparently was quite elated at Tomas's response to Kaabil, which the latter thinks has got all the potions for a superhit Hollywood film. Hrithik is reportedly yet to discuss with his father Rakesh Roshan about it in detail. Once he is back from New York, he talk to him.
Roshan Senior, who produced the film, is equally intrigued by the offer. "The screenplay was hard-hitting, and the drama, gripping. It would make for a wonderful Hollywood adaptation, given that it has all the necessary emotions. It struck gold at the box office because it was about a visually-impaired lover seeking revenge," Rakesh Roshan told Mid-Day.
Hrithik and Yami Gautam play the lead roles in this revenge drama that released in January this year.
