Arjun Kapoor to remake Jayam Ravi’s Comali in Hindi?
Jayam Ravi’s last release ‘Comali’ was a big hit at the box office. The comedy entertainer directed by debutant Pradeep Ranganathan is now getting a Hindi version. Leading Bollywood producer Boney Kapoor has acquired the remake rights and his son Ajrun Kapoor will be starring in the Hindi version. More details regarding who will be directing the film and when shoot starts are expected to be announced soon.
‘Comali’ is a quirky fun flick that revolves around a person who recovers one sudden day after being in comatose for nine years. How he finds it difficult to cope up with the changes in the society makes way for several hilarious moments. It will be interesting to see how the makers of the Hindi version adapt it to make it appealing for the native audience.
In ‘Comali’, Jayam Ravi appeared in multiple looks, one of which was a school boy, for which he had shed over 10 kilos of body weight. Kajal Agarwal and Samyuktha Hegde played the two female leads in the film. Upon release in August, ‘Comali’ emerged as a huge success in all the centres. It is the second biggest hit in Jayam Ravi’s career after ‘Thani Oruvan’. After starring in several remake films, Jayam Ravi’s films are now getting remade in other languages, which proves a point about his growth as a bankable actor.
