And so, if Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner changed the way we viewed vampires and werewolves, Producer Sidhartha Jain (of Ragini MMS fame) has decided to desi-fy the Twilight film and is trying to rope in Ranbir Kapoor and Imran Khan to play the mythical creatures. But since no one will confirm if the duo have indeed signed on the dotted line, we really don’t know which hottie will play the vampire and which one, the werewolf.
The film – called Bloody Veer – is supposed to release in October-end next year, to coincide with Halloween. But while we don’t mind seeing the duo cavorting across the silver screen, howling at the moon and dodging pods of garlic, we’re trying to figure out why Indian film-makers are so short on ideas that they have to re-make every successful Hollywood film. Has Bollywood gone through a brain-drain? Or maybe a writer’s-block? Even Ektaa Kapoor ripped off Twilight with Pyaar Ki Yeh Ek Kahani (uff!). What do you think, folks?
P.S. MissMalini says, I told you so, ages ago 🙂
