Director Bejoy Nambiar is working on the remake of Mani Ratnam’s hit film Agni Nachathira. Bejoy, who tasted success with his last film Wazir, is busy re-writing the Tamil version of the 1988 film for the Hindi audience. “One of the scripts I am working on is a contemporary reboot of that film (Agni Nachathiram),” said Bejoy.
The cast for this film will be decided once Bejoy finishes the script. “We will announce all that in some time,” Bejoy said, when asked if he would go for A-listers or newcomers for the movie.
