After its blockbuster success in India, Aamir Khan starrer 3 Idiots is all set to get a Hollywood remake.
"We are in talks with 3 studios in Hollywood and one company in Italy for the remake of 3 Idiots," Vidhu Vinod Chopra told PTI on the sidelines of the ongoing International film festival of India (IFFI).
And that's not it. The film, which released in India in December 2009, is all set to explore other markets. It is releasing in Mainland China with a whopping 900 prints next week.
"Its a first for any Hindi film to release with so many prints in China. It is also being adapted into a stage musical in Taiwan. The film has already made 2-3 million dollars in Hong Kong," said Chopra.
The film is also getting a Chinese remake.
Ferrari... starring Sharman Joshi is a film about a father-son relationship and will release in April next year.
"Currently the trailer is being made and will be released alongwith Don 2," said Chopra.
Talking about Bollywood participation in a festival like IFFI, Chopra said, "Stars get paid to attend most of the events. In a festival like Cannes, even bad movies are premiered so that stars come and walk the red carpet. This festival has to be taken to that level that the stars willingly participate."
