‘Kung Fu Hustle’ Remake?

Is Akshay Kumar working in the remake of Stephen Chows KUNG FU HUSTLE, directed by Rohan Sippy? Thats the buzz in the industry. How far is it true? Lets get it straight from Rohan himself Akshay is a great guy. We were keen to work with him some day and when we narrated this concept [Sridhar Raghavan has penned the script], he gave his approval instantly. I would like to clarify that its not a remake of KUNG FU HUSTLE. Its an original script altogether. Another misconception is that I am directing the film. Thats untrue! Sriram Raghavan [EK HASINA THI] is directing this film. I am merely producing this venture. This film requires a lot of pre-production planning. In fact, we are already planning its promotional ideas at the very outset. We are all charged up right now. Its going to be fun. I am concentrating on film production at the moment. This year is crucial for us. We release FEAR [dir.: Vikram Bhatt] in April. Then we get headlong into two projects. Sujoy Ghoshs ALADDIN with Mr. Bachchan [playing the genie], Sanjay Dutt [in a flamboyant role] and Ritesh Deshmukh [as Aladdin] will take off in the first half of 2007. The next project to roll is a comedy with Nana Patekar and Shahid Kapoor in principal roles. Rohit Shetty [ZAMEEN, GOLMAAL] is directing this film. Its a fantastic script with great characters. We havent titled it yet. Plus, theres this Akshay Kumar film I just spoke about. Right now, I am enjoying my job as a producer. Sujoy, Sriram, Sridhar and Rohit are huge fans of Hindi cinema and also of my father [Ramesh Sippy]. Theyre brimming with ideas and possess distinguished sensibilities. I am looking forward to their projects with enthusiasm. I have no idea when Id start my film [BLUFFMASTER! was his last release]. Is it with Abhishek? I dont know. Get me a script and Ill tell you!
