SRK and KJo to make film on Haj piligrimage
After My Name Is Khan, producer-director Karan Johar and Shah Rukh Khan are coming together to make another Islam-centric film. It will be a Hindi remake of the National Award winning Malayalam film Adaminde Makan Abu (Abu, son of Adam). The film is about the journey of an elderly Muslim couple trying to go to Haj and the problems they face.
Karan Johar is said to have bought the remake rights for around Rs 25 lakhs. The Hindi version will deviate from the original Malayalam version so as to make it commercially viable and keeping the global market in view.
If all goes well, this film will go on floors next year. This film will be directed by Karan Johar.
