Yash Raj Films (YRF), which had floated a South Indian
division to remake its own hits into South Indian languages,
is toying with the idea of remaking Band Baaja Baarat
in Telugu, Tamil and Kannada with fresh faces in the
will be followed by the Abhishek Bachchan-Rani Mukherjee
starrer Bunty aur Babli.
this, a YRF spokesperson said "We are seriously
looking at remaking Band Baaja Baaraat in the
South." Band Baaja Baaraat starred Ranveer Singh
and Anoushka Sharma and was well received, especially
among younger audiences."
this film had made a mark at the box office, many
filmmakers from the south had approached the production
house to buy the rights of the film. However, YRF
has never sold the making rights of any of their films.
since Bodyguard, Ready and Singham
came on the scene, trade is abuzz with talk that films
from South India being remade in Hindi is the order
of the day. But few know that several South Indian
films are based on Hindi films.
Aditya Chopra realised the huge potential of the South
Indian market, he set up YRF Deccan and appointed
Padam Kumar as the head since he is a known producer
in the south and understands the market well.
