"I am really happy and humbled by the response that Kahaani has garnered since its release. Kahaani has been able to succeed because of the audience and their faith in the film. I am very thankful to them and to South Asian Rising Star Film Awards for finding Kahaani's screenplay befitting for the award," said a visibly excited Sujoy. "Kahaani is a story that has connected very well with the audience because it is their story. Sujoy did a brilliant job as a director and a writer and we at Pen India have been excited about this project since the first day," said Jayantilal Gada, CMD, Pen India Pvt Ltd.
The film will soon be adapted in Tamil and Telugu by Endemol Production House and in English by Yash Raj Films.
