Reports suggest that southern director Alphonse Putharen is set to remake Malayalam thriller Shutter in Hindi with Anil Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Abhay Deol and Tusshar Kapoor.

Putharen says he is awaiting confirmation from the actors, "I have already approached Anilji, Anushka, Abhay and Tusshar for the four lead roles in the film. I still haven't heard from them. I should finalise the cast in about a month's time."

Alphonse, who is basking in the success of his last Tamil-Malayalam directorial venture Neram, says he will retain the same technical team for the Hindi project. Directed by Joy Mathew, critically acclaimed Shutter is a satirical take on the plight of Indian workers in the Gulf.

The untitled Hindi remake is currently in its pre-production phase.
