Hero, Karma to get Southern makeover!

By Hindustan Times

Mumbai, Oct. 16 -- Twenty nine years after he made a smashing debut in Subhash Ghai's Hero, Jackie Shroff's hit film is set to re-enter cinema halls again - albeit in a new avatar.

We have learned from reliable sources that Ghai's Muka Arts is currently negotiating with a number of leading south Indian producers to get films like Karz (1980), Karma (1986), Aitraaz (2004), and Hero remade in Tamil and Telugu. "It's true that Subhashji is in the final stages of talks about these remakes. He is in no hurry, considering all four films are very close to his heart. And he wants only the best makers to bag the rights. His company will be part of these productions and it could mark the company's first foray into south Indian cinema," says an insider, adding, "The storylines of all four films are still very interesting and relevant."
