Mumbai, April 29 (IANS) Rituparno Ghosh had planned to remake the 1960s classic "Kaagaz Ke Phool" in Hindi with Naseeruddin Shah and Shabana Azmi but is now making it in Bengali and has named it "Abaho Mann".
"I wanted to do this subject for a long time. It was to be done in Hindi. But it didn't quite work out. I'm far more comfortable doing it in Bengali with a cast that understands the nuances of the culture where I've located the drama," Ghosh told IANS.
Veteran actor Deepankar De enacts the role played by Guru Dutt in the original, Mamta Shankar is the wife and Ananya Chatterjee plays Waheeda Rehman's role in this real-life love triangle.
