Vivek Agnihotri's ambitious plans for the Hindi remake of 12 ANGRY MEN are currently on hold. He has already announced FREEDOM, another epic tale which takes audiences through the socio-political state of India from the 70s to the current times, with Sanjay Dutt and Madhavan. However work on 12 ANGRY MEN, which has been in news since Vivek's last release DHAN DHANA DHAN GOAL, would begin only at a later stage once FREEDOM is ready.

"Frankly speaking, there have been budget constraints over a period of time and one has to be cognizant of the economics before stepping into a project. In any case how many announcements did we actually hear in the entire 2009? Now the market has started opening up a little and it makes sense to make FREEDOM first. Yes, the adaptation of 12 ANGRY MEN is close to my heart too and that will happen in due course of time", says Vivek who made his debut as a film maker with CHOCOLATE.

12 ANGRY MEN is a Hollywood classic and its original story revolved around 12 jurors who had to decide whether an 18 year old boy was 'guilty' or 'not guilty' of murdering his father. For the Hindi remake of the film, there were also talks that actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgan, Victor Bannerjee and Om Puri were being approached for the film.

Continuing on FREEDOM, Vivek adds, "FREEDOM is meaningful cinema with a commercial appeal to it. It’s a political thriller that gives a blow by blow account of modern day India during last three decades. This is a story that I have been waiting to tell for years now. Though CHOCOLATE and DHAN DHANA DHAN GOAL happened in the interim, I was always keen to bring FREEDOM for Indian viewers. The beauty of the subject is that it stays on to be as topical as ever. Even if I had to make FREEDOM in 2020, it will still retain its charm because there would always be newer episodes to tell from the decade gone by."
