In the past few years, Marathi movies have raised their bar high and created a huge space, not only in Marathi speaking belt but also amongst the Hindi audiences. Many actors like Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn, especially after the overwhelming success of Sairat, had shown their interest in Marathi movies. Now, as per the latest reports, superstar Salman Khan has acquired the rights of recent Marathi blockbuster Mulshi Pattern for Hindi Remake.
As reported by Mumbai Mirror, Salman Khan’s Production bagged the rights of Mulshi Pattern for Hindi remake. It will feature actor’s brother-in-law Aayush Sharma in the key role and is expected to commence by mid-2019.
A source reveals, “Earlier this week, Salman had a meeting with Aayush at his office to discuss the project. They have yet to finalize the director and the hunt is on for the leading lady. Unlike his debut film, Love Yatri, which was a love story, this one will see Aayush in a more serious avatar. He will start training in action soon”, reports Mumbai Mirror.
The Marathi version depicts the story of landlords and farmers in Mulshi taluka of Pune, who sold their lands at frugal rates during the age of economic liberalization, and later found themselves in a plight of poverty and crime. It featured Om Bhutkar in the lead, and a strong supporting cast of Mohan Joshi, Mahesh Manjrekar, Upendra Limaye and Savita Malpekar. The movie is directed by Pravin Vitthal Tarde and released on 23rd November 2018.
