Atul Agnihotri reveals how Salman Khan came on board for Korean film ‘Veteran’s remake
Actor-producer Atul Agnihotri is gearing up for the release of this year’s most anticipated film ‘Bharat’. Starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif in the lead role, everyone is eagerly looking forward to its release. Interestingly, even before ‘Bharat’s release, Atul has already locked his next project. The actor-producer has bought the rights of hit South Korean film ‘Veteran’ which will be remade in Hindi. And once again, superstar Salman will be playing the lead role.
Sharing about how he got Salman on board, Atul said, “I saw the film (Veteran) and I liked it. I thought it is an opportunity to make it with him. It is a great film. I showed him the film and he felt the same. Salman has given a go ahead. He will play the detective in the film.”
Talking about how the Korean film will be adapted according to the sensibilities of the Indian audiences, Atul said that adaptations are only starting point as many things need to be modified or changed keeping in mind the target audience. “It will have many big things, I have to make it bigger and larger as the expectations are huge every time Salman does a film. We hope to start sometime next year,” he added.
When quizzed what is so special about Korean films, since ‘Bharat’ too is a remake of ‘Ode To My Father’, the actor-producer said it’s just a coincidence that he liked both these films and decided to adapt them.
