"Get a good Hindi dialogue writer" is what Shahid Kapoor advised director Linguswamy when the Tamil-to-Hindi remake of his Tamil hit `Vettai` was not working out. Now everything is sorted out and the movie is set to go on floors in June.
At a time when South film remakes are popular in Hindi, Malayalam superstar Mohanlal feels that even if various elements are added to the content, the soul of the original is lost when it is re-produced in different languages several times.
After making it big in Bollywood with the Hindi version of her Tamil film `Ghajini`, Asin Thottumkal is now on a remake spree. The young actress says such offers only help her reach out to a wider audience in different parts of the country. "Remakes help in doing that - to get a wider audience and to get the film across to a larger number of people," Asin told reporters from Mumbai.
