Darsheel Safary, of ‘Taare Zameen Par’ fame, will now star in multilingual director Priyadarshan’s Hindi remake of an acclaimed Iranian film.
Priyadarshan’s film is a remake of the 1998 Iranian movie ‘Children of Heaven’ that underlines a poignant relationship between siblings. The Indian version of the film will be released early next year and is expected to be shown in several foreign film festivals, said a publicist.
Meanwhile Priyadarshan’s forthcoming venture ‘Kanchipuram’, a celluloid diatribe against communism woven around the silk trade in Kanchipuram, 60 km from Chennai, is scheduled to be shown at the Toronto Film Festival next month.
The director, known for his highly acclaimed comedies like ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’, ‘Garam Masala’ and ‘Hera Pheri’, said he is planning to branch out into meaningful cinema to fulfill his dream.
