Aamir Khan’s ‘Taare Zameen Par’ to have a Chinese remake
Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan is an all-time great and when he makes films, he does it with utmost dedication and sincerity. The actor, despite being 54 years of age, still has child-like enthusiasm about him and takes immense pride in his work. Now, Aamir’s 2007 film ‘Taare Zameen Par’ will be having a Chinese remake. Yes, you have read it absolutely right!
In 2010, to mark the 60th anniversary Indo-China diplomatic ties, ‘Taare Zameen Par’ was among the nine films that were screened in China with English subtitles.
However, according to a report in Mumbai Mirror, a trade source claimed that ‘Taare Zameen Par’ was not officially released in the Chinese market even though it was one of the highest rated foreign films on a popular Chinese film site, Douban.
Aamir enjoys a massive fan following in China and his films such as ‘PK’, ‘Dangal’ and ‘Secret Superstar’ have done astonishing business at the Chinese box-office.
A source quoted by Mumbai Mirror said, “But China does not permit the release of foreign films that are older than two years so that move was scuttled. But since the film rides on universal emotions, a collective decision of remaking it with a local star cast was taken recently.”
For those who are unaware, ‘Taare Zameen Par’ was a very emotional film. It told the story of a boy, who is suffering from dyslexia and how he overcomes all the setbacks. Child actor Darsheel Safary’s impeccable acting as Ishaan Awasthi left quite a few people teary-eyed after watching the film.
The movie, which is now to be remade in Chinese, will be directed by Ma Duo that will be produced by a local banner. Ma Duo was earlier an assistant director to the Jiang Wen classic ‘Let The Bullets Fly’.
