Rana Daggubati, who became a force to reckon with after the humongous success of Baahubali: The Beginning (2015) and Baahubali: The Conclusion (2017), has several interesting projects lined up for release not only in Tollywood but in Bollywood also. We have also learnt that the handsome star has ventured into film production with his maiden Telugu film currently underway in Hyderabad.
Daggubati recently saw Telugu film Oh! Baby (2019) and seems interested in remaking it in Hindi. He says he will definitely look at the idea of remaking it in Hindi soon. Starring Samantha Akkineni in the lead role, Oh! Baby revolves around a 70-year-old woman who finds herself in the body of a 24-year-old one fine morning. The movie is an official remake of South Korean comic-caper Miss Granny (2014).
“Clearly, it’s a story that travels. It’s a story originally written in Korean language and adapted into many other languages in the world. I will definitely look at making it in Hindi soon,” Rana Daggubati said. “Although the central plot and conflicts are the same, many adaptations and additional characters have been introduced that form an essential part of the drama and fun in the film,” he added.
The actor went on to add that the characters of a remake should find a connect with the audience. “The adaptation, the characters and the story must feel like it’s happening in a world that the audiences can relate to. The characters should be such that they find a connect with them.”
Meanwhile, Rana Daggubati is looking forward to the release of his Bollywood film Housefull 4, which also stars Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Bobby Deol, Kriti Kharbanda, Kriti Sanon and Pooja Hedge in lead roles. His upcoming Telugu ventures include Hiranya Kashyap, Madai Thiranthu, Enai Noki Paayum Thota, and Virataparvam 1992. After Housefull 4, his next Bollywood release will be Bhuj: The Pride Of India.
