Other language superstars approach Driving Licence team for remake rights!
‘Driving Licence’ directed by Jean Paul Lal aka Lal Jr hit screens last Friday (December 20). The film scripted by Sachy has Prithviraj Sukumaran and Suraj Venjaramoodu in the lead roles. It has opened to unanimously positive response from all corners. Critic reviews have also been encouraging with special mention for the performance of its two lead actors. Popular opinion is that the film is a well-made commercial entertainer.
Interestingly, other language stars have approached ‘Driving Licence’ team for the remake rights. Top stars from Telugu and Tamil film industries have expressed interest to remake the film in their languages. It must be noted that the film has an interesting storyline with an universal appeal. It is primarily centred around two individuals – a film star and his ardent fan, who is a motor vehicle inspector. It is the clash of ego between the two that form the film’s crux.
Since Malayalam films are always known for getting remade, the possibility of ‘Driving
Licence’ going to other languages are certainly high. Moreover, the fact that the film has turned to be a big hit with unanimous acceptance from the Malayali audience is also a big factor. An official announcement regarding the remake versions is expected to be made very soon.
