Sanjay Gupta and Madhavan on a collision course

Bollywood News

Madhavan is currently basking in the success of Yenalu Oruvan, the Tamil version of the award-winning Marathi film Dombivali Fast. Now the actor-director duo is all set to take the film's journey from Marathi and Tamil to Hindi. A Hindi version of the film is on the anvil. But there's a hitch. Sanjay Gupta wants to adapt the same story of an ordinary man going on a rampage all over the city after being pushed beyond the brink. Gupta, who just returned from a biking tour that took him from Mumbai to Pune, Goa, Belgaum and then back via Pune to Mumbai, is hugely kicked by the idea. "The idea actually came to me from Joel Schumacher's 1983 drama Falling Down where a middle-aged man goes berserk with a baseball bat in Los Angeles. I want to transpose the theme to Mumbai and cast Mr. Bachchan in the lead. I don't think anyone else can do justice to the role." So, where do Gupta's plans leave Madhavan and his Hindi adaptation of Dombivali Fast which apparently Abbas-Mustan will produce? "Right where it was before," smiles Madhavan. "I don't deny there are similarities between Nishikant's film and Falling Down. But certain themes can be interpreted in different ways. I'm sure Mr. Gupta's take on the theme will be very different from ours." But don't be surprised if both the eager parties rush to the finishing post with their products
