And that's not all, the ad filmmaker who is planning his Bollywood innings with this project revealed that the remake of the cult 1983 classic directed by Balu Mahendra and produced by Raj N. Sippy and Romu N. Sippy will be a bilingual in Hindi and English.

SADMA saw Sridevi giving her career best performance as a child-woman suffering from amnesia and is also remembered for Kamal Haasan's unforgettable role as her caretaker Somu.

Lloyd will first shoot the film in Hindi and commence the Hollywood version by next year. “Yes, I will first shoot the SADMA remake in Hindi and then next year I will shoot it in English. We are simultaneously locking the star cast for both the films and both the films will have a different star cast,” Lloyd has reportedly made this statement to the media.

Speaking on Kareena Kapoor Khan and Vidya Balan rejecting the film, Lloyd says, "I request media to relax on this matter and all details of the film shall come out soon. This is a very big film and I want to do full justice to its remake. No decision shall be rushed. We have roped in leading casting director Mukesh Chabra to do the casting for the film and the names will be revealed after being locked."

The director also added that reports of Vidya Balan rejecting the movie is false as he never approached her for the role and on Kareena Kapoor story, Lloyd said he had earlier spoken to actress Kareena Kapoor Khan, but she was busy with KI & KA.
