Mumbai: They have formed a mutual admiration society. If Mahesh Bhatt is in awe of Hansal Mehta`s work, the latter is so fascinated by Bhatt that he wishes to remake his "Saaransh".

Mehta, who associated with Bhatt for "Citylights", said: "I love the kind of films Mahesh Bhatt has made and if given an option, I would love to remake `Saaransh`."

Bhatt, who made the highly appreciated film with Anupam Kher, a newcomer then, is okay with the idea.

When asked if he is fine with Mehta`s `Saaransh` remake plans, Bhatt promptly replied: "I will be more than happy if he wants to remake `Saaransh`."

Meanwhile, Mehta is happy the way "Citylights", which stars Rajkummar Rao and Patralekha in the lead roles, has been accepted.

"It was an honest attempt to make the film and I am extremely happy the way the film has been accepted by the audience," said the filmmaker.
