The film’s rights have been apparently secured to remake the film in an Indian setting. Paresh Rawal and Zareen Khan have been signed for the project while talks are on with choreographer Remo D’Souza.

Set in Botswana, the film followed the travails of a tribe who have no knowledge of the world beyond them till a soft drink bottle is thrown out of an aircraft and falls on their land. It exposes the tribe to unknown phenomenon. In desi setting, the bottle has been replaced by Dawood Ibrahim’s mobile phone.

Says Ramanan,“South filmmaker Babu has secured the rights to make it in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. I have adapted the script for the Hindi version and will direct as well with Navin Kumar Sharma as producer. We have set the film in a remote mountainous place in Himachal Pradesh. The soft drink bottle in the original has been replaced with Dawood Ibrahim’s cell phone, as there is also an underworld touch to the script. Paresh essays a gangster in the film.”

Ramanan had earlier directed a film that never saw light of day. He later worked on some Hollywood productions and was also creative director of Zila Ghaziabad.
