Rumours that Rohit Shetty’s next starring Ranveer Singh was a remake of Telugu action film ‘Temper’ (2015) have been doing the rounds for some time. The filmmaker has admitted that some scenes will be similar to the film but that his next is not a remake.
“We have bought the rights of Temper but our film is not exactly a remake. We wanted to take four-five scenes from Temper but we thought it’s better to buy the rights. It’s what we did with Singham. Our film was different from the original Singham except a few scenes. Here also, we have written our own film taking the exact idea,” said Shetty, according to Indian Express.
Shetty also revealed that comparisons don’t bother him. “Comparisons are inevitable. Which film releases nowadays without controversy or comparisons? So, that’s not an issue. We don’t want to hide anything so we are clearly saying that yes, we have bought the rights. I don’t think that would happen with me because I have done Singham and nothing of that sort happened with it,” he continued.
It was rumoured that Kajal Aggarwal had bagged the female lead part but Shetty denies this, “I don’t know how these rumours have come up. I am yet to finalise the heroine. The girl’s part hasn’t shaped up yet. I will announce the female lead in December or January”.
