Director Aanand L Rai’s Nil Battey Sannata is being produced in Tamil by actor-director Dhanush by the name Amma Kanakku. And this is probably the first time that both the versions of the film will release on the same day.
According to a source, “Usually, remake of a film is released after a considerable gap . There have also been bi-linguals shot at the same location and time. However, these two films adapt to two different cultures for the same storyline. The original, shot in Agra has the quintessential North flavour, whereas, the Tamil version adapts the storyline into a South India setup and has been shot in Chennai. Yet both Aanand and Dhanush have decided to release both the versions of the film on the same date (April 22),” says a source close to the production house.
While Tamil remake stars Amala and Revathi reprising the roles of Swara Bhaskar and Ratna Pathak Shah,both the films have been directed by the talented Ashwiny Tiwari Iyer.
Nil Battey Sannata is a lighthearted fun-filled exploration of a mother and daughter’s relationship. Both films will release 22nd April 2016.
