Filmmaker Sekhar Kammula, who has remade Hindi blockbuster Kahaani in Telugu as Anaamika, says it is always challenging to remake a hit film in any language as it requires adapting to local sensibilities.

“When you’re doing a frame-to-frame copy then a remake might be easy to execute but adapting a remake to local sensibilities is always a challenge, irrespective of the language it is being made in. Anaamika is not a frame-to-frame copy of the original, it has been adapted to suit the local flavour,” Kammula said.

“The film is made in such a way that for all those who haven’t watched the original, it will appear as a different film. All those who have watched Kahaani will also connect with Anaamika as it is made keeping in mind the local sensibilities,” he said.

“I have made changes to ensure the audiences feel that the film is different from the original in many ways,” he added.

Is Aaha Kalyanam Vaani Kapoor’s last film in Tollywood?

While Vidya Balan played a pregnant woman in search of her missing husband in the original, Nayanthara will not be playing a pregnant character in Anaamika. “The film’s premise is about the protagonist’s search for her missing husband. I didn’t find the need to retain the pregnant part because my film is not a frame-to-frame copy. Nayanthara still had to work hard in her role because she doesn’t get to earn any sympathy for being pregnant,” added Kammula.

The film, produced by Endemol India, also features Harshvardhan Rane, Vaibhav Reddy and Pasupathy in important roles. Anaamika will be dubbed in Tamil and it is titled Nee Enge En Anbe.
