Way back in 2016 we had written an article about the Bollywood remake of 'The Intern'. We (Bollywood) have been bitten by the inspiration (or more profusely) the remake bug. Can I request Mr. Sircar to consider do the honours. A director who can think a VICKY DONOR can definitely do justice to such a concept and 'oblige' us with good cinema.
Actors Rishi Kapoor and Deepika Padukone will star in the official Hindi remake of the Robert De Niro-Anne Hathaway starrer Hollywood comedy hit, "The Intern".
Sharing the news on social media, Deepika wrote: "Thrilled to present my next! The Indian adaptation of #TheIntern. A 2021 release! Presented by @_KaProductions @warnerbrosindia and @iAmAzure. See you at the movies! @chintskap."
The project is jointly produced by Deepika and Sunir Kheterpal under their banners Ka Productions and Azure Entertainment respectively.
Excited to be a part of the film, Rishi said: " 'The Intern' is a very relevant film for the present-day Indian workplace milieu and it showcases human relationships beautifully. I am very excited to be working with Deepika and being a part of this heart-warming story. It is great that Warner Bros. and AZURE are officially making this film in India."
Talking more about "The Intern", Deepika shared it is an "intimate, relationship-driven film, set in and around the workplace."
"A story that I believe is very relevant to the present-day social and cultural environment. I have been looking for a light, breezy comedy-drama and this story fits in seamlessly. I cannot wait to begin this journey," she added.
The Bollywood remake of "The Intern" will release in 2021.
