In 2012, the Vidya Balan starrer Kahaani was a big hit. Now, the story is set to wow international audiences as a remake was announced by Aditya Chopra's production company. While the Hindi version was directed by Sujoy Ghosh, Niels Arden Oplev (who made the Swedish The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo; 2009) will helm the international one.
"Niels is the perfect director to transform the appeal of Kahaani," said Uday Chopra, CEO of the production firm, in a statement. "It will be a compelling and exciting thriller with complex and interesting characters", says Niels. The film starts production in February 2015 and will be shot on location in Kolkata.
