Director Anil Shama, known for directing Bollywood game changer GADAR: EK PREM KATHA is eyeing his comeback with GENIUS. The movie which marks the debut of his son Utkarsh is currently under developing stage.

The director, known for his commercial potboilers, however is not in favour of remakes. Refusing to join the bandwagon in which we are hearing news about the remake of Subash Ghai's RAM LAKHAN by Rohit Shetty, rights of Vashu Bhagnani's super hits like HERO NO. 1, COOLIE NO. 1 etc being acquired by Eros International.

The director who prefers to be called as the filmmaker for the masses who cares for the audience happiness more than his own says, "Only average films can be remade, you cannot make a remake of TITANIC, SHOLAY, MUGHAL–E–AZAM. By the grace of God, GADAR: EK PREM KATHA has set a benchmark and it cannot be recreated. You cannot recreate Mona Lisa. I am no way comparing Mona Lisa with GADAR: EK PREM KATHA, I am only saying that milestones established by certain art should be kept untouched. By remaking them, you cannot better them.”

When the filmmaker was quipped on the ongoing trend where established filmmakers and big corporates are backing such moves for big profits like the case of Vashu Bhagnani, Anil Sharma says, “Vashu Bhagnani has made good family entertainers and this particular incident is a business decision and I am a filmmaker more than a businessman.”

This gesture by a filmmaker like Anil Sharma who is making a comeback is important as making a remake is in a way sign of creative bankruptcy that wishes to ‘cash' on those classics and cults that has already delivered.
