The South African blockbuster will soon be remade in Bollywood
After following the trend of films from down South being remade in Hindi and vice versa, it seems like it is time that B-town gave other films a chance! Filmmaker MJ Ramanan is doing just that after he decided to come up with a remake of the 1980 South African blockbuster The Gods Must Be Crazy in Hindi.
Written and directed by Jamie Uys, the original film is a documentary style comedy about a group of indigenous people in South Africa whose lives change after a soft drink bottle thrown from an aircraft that falls in their area. However, the remake will have a different storyline, and instead of the soft drink bottle, it will be Dawood Ibrahim’s cellphone.
In the remake, Paresh Rawal will be seen playing one of the lead characters along with Jacqueline Fernandez. If sources are to be believed, Remo D’Souza too is being consulted for one of the roles. Well, this sounds like one quirky movie, though we hope it’s not only a piece of news and we hear more on the film’s release date! So keep watching this space for more on the remake.
