Popular ad man Lloyd Baptista has apparently bought the right of ��Sadma�۪ (1983) from Raj Sippy. Baptista is hoping to remake the film to appeal to the modern-day audience.
Baptista told TOI, ���Sadma is a masterpiece, it should be passed on to the next generation.I have watched it countless times and though it would be a challenge to remake it, I am up for it�.
He has wanting to remake the film for a good ten years. He continues, ���Back then, I lived in New Zealand and wanted to direct an English version. I showed the film to a few people who found it slow and offbeat so I dropped the idea. Then, a few months ago, I got in touch with Raj Sippy who invited me to his residence. Impressed by my passion and honesty for the film, he gladly gave me the film’s rights�.
Baptista says that it will be difficult to replace stalwarts like Sridevi and Kamal Haasan so it remains to be seen who acts in the remake.
