After the disaster of ‘Mausam’ (2010), Shahid Kapoor’s father Pankaj Kapur is struggling to acquire remake rights of the South Indian film ‘Arya 2’.
According to Mid-Day, Kapur has failed to pick up the rights, instead going to Tips Films. Industry vibes have it that Girish Kumar may star in the film now, to be produced by father Kumar Taurani.
An insider told the publication, ���The director of Arya 2, Sukumar was interested to remake the film with Shahid. Talks were held twice with two different production houses. However, soon after Mausam tanked, the deal fell apart.�
Earlier this year, the Tauranis initiated talks to acquire the rights and the deal will be finalised soon. Sukumar is currently busy with his next film, starring Mahesh Babu.
While Pankaj Kapur rubbished the buzz, Kumar Taurani said, ���Nothing has been finalised.� The Tauranis already hold the remake rights of ‘Arya 1’.
