While it's been some time since the news about Ali and Shahid's collaboration is out, very few know that it is actually an official adaptation of a French thriller film, Nuit Blanche.
According to a report by Bollywood Hungama, the filmmaker acquired the rights to remake Nuit Blanche (Sleepless Nights in English). The original film featured Tomer Sisley as the lead and revolved around the life of a cop whose association with the underworld comes out in the open when they try to steal drugs from a powerful drug lord. Shahid will mostly play the cop. The report also suggests that the film has been altered keeping the Indian mindset in place.
The report further mentions that a top actress is being considered to play the female lead.
I am super excited about this one and sure can't wait to see what they have in store for us! What about you guys?
