Now, given the mass appeal the film has, it has attracted the attention of producers in Bollywood as well. According to a report by Pinkvilla, the makers of Kabir Singh, Murad Khetani and Endemol Shine, have already bought the rights to the film at a hefty amount.
Pinkvilla quotes a source as saying that Murad and the Endemol team were at Chennai last week to attend a special screening of Master. They loved the film and instantly began the paperwork to bag the remake rights. They are currently on the lookout for a director to helm the project.
As for the cast, the source informs that the producers are looking at casting some big names in Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi’s roles. The film will go on floors once the director and actors are on board, which will mostly be in the later half of the year.
This sure is some exciting news and we are already looking forward to know which big Bollywood names we’ll see in this mass entertainer!
