While researching for something else, we came across this interview with Priyadarshan from 2004. He had got bulk dates from Salman Khan and was excited about his “dream” project.
“Unlike my other Hindi films, this one isn”t a remake. With Salman in the film I don”t need to worry about an attentive market. He”ll ensure that. The untitled film is being produced by Sunil Manchanda the people who produced Salman”s ”Tere Naam”,” Priyan told IANS.[My dream project is finally happening: Priyadarshan]
He was talking about the movie Kyon Ki, which was released recently and this movie was a remake of the Malayalam movie, Thalavattom, starring Mohanlal and Karthika. And guess who directed Thalavattom?
