Ekta Kapoor to remake Jeetendra, Reena Roy-starrer Naagin
Ekta Kapoor is all set to remake the 1976-made Rajkumar Kohli- directed Jeetendra, Reena Roy-starrer Naagin.
It is learnt that Balaji Motion Pictures has almost finalized buying the rights from Kohli who also produced the original film. As of now, the production house is busy checking whether any filmmaker has registered the title Naagin.
Confirming the news Kohli says, “I am selling the remake rights of Naagin to Balaji. Though the film is a good product, I am not interested in remaking it. Hence, why should I keep it with me? Balaji is a good production house and I need money.” It is learnt that if all goes well the film is likely to go on floors in 2013.
Of late, there’s been an upsurge in the purchase of remake rights of many 70s and 80s films. It is known that Salman Khan, Ajay Devgn and Akshay Kumar are on producer Rajat Rawail’s wish-list for his remake of the Amitabh Bachchan-starrer Kaalia.
Rawail is also interested in buying the rights of the Shatrughan Sinha-starrer Vishwanath. On the other hand, though Pahlaj Nihalani has been receiving several offers for his made Govinda and Chunkey Pandey-starrer Aankhen, he has no intentions of parting with the title.
