5 years after his last directorial venture Zinda, Sanjay Gupta is all set for his next directorial venture which is the remake of the Spanish film Ladron Que Roba A Ladron.
Sanjay, who has this time around, officially acquired the rights of this film from the makers Lions Gate Films, is least perturbed by the fact that another top director Abbas-Mustan is also planning to make the same film.
Speaking exclusively to Bollywood Hungama, Sanjay says, “I am certainly going ahead with the remake of Ladron Que Roba A Ladron. We are planning to shoot the film in London and for the same I am even planning to acquire an office there. The film will star 4 heroes and 2 heroines and most of my cast is more or less locked. We will be making an announcement shortly on the same. Besides the film will also have a lot of foreign crew members.”
Ask him whether he has been facing any kind of pressure to part with the rights of the film and Sanjay says, “Yes I have been getting a lot of calls asking me to part with the rights but I guess its all too late in the day now. A lot of spadework has already been done now and so you can say things are in quite an advanced stage right now as far as White Feather Films is concerned.”
On being asked how did he decide on remaking this particular film, Gupta says, “I happened to receive a lot of fan mails asking me to remake this particular film. I then watched the film myself and really enjoyed it and thought that it was indeed a very good, commercial film. Ladron Que Roba A Ladron is a highly cool and entertaining action comedy film, so its but obvious that there are a lot of people who want to remake the film in Hindi. However, luckily for me, I got in touch with the original producers a long time back and acquired the official remake rights.”
On a parting note, Gupta said that the film will go on floors shortly.
