After the announcement of the Hollywood remake RED by Anil Kapoor, another good news is here to cheer Anil Kapoor and his fans all over.
Eros International and Soham Rockstar Entertainment have joined hands to produce the sequel to 2001 hit NAYAK starring Anil Kapoor, Rani Mukherjee and Amrish Puri.
The political drama helmed by ROBOT fame S. Shankar was the remake of the 1999 Tamil super hit MUDHALVAN starring Arjun and Manisha Koirala.
The remake will be penned by the veteran by K.V. Vijayendra Prasad of BAAHUBALI & BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN fame.
Continuing from the earlier film, the sequel will be a political satire with romance as the backdrop. The sequel will also introduce fresh characters while retaining some of the old characters including the lead character, Shivaji Rao.
Commenting on the development, Sunil Lulla, Managing Director, Eros International Media Ltd. says, “NAYAK created ripples on its release and was one of the most successful political satires of its time. It's the apt time to plan the sequel in the current political milieu. And we can expect only the finest writing with Vijayendra Prasad ji on board who has given two of Bollywood's biggest releases last year - BAAHUBALI & BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN”.
Producer Deepak Mukut of Soham Rockstar Entertainment, adds, “We are partnering with Eros International to jointly produce the sequel of NAYAK. This was a very popular film and continues to be widely watched on television. We have bought the rights of the film and the action promises to be even bigger and better. We will soon begin the casting process and are very excited about the project.”
