Remake of Mani Ratnam’s Agni Nachathiram not shelved, says Bejoy Nambiar

Bejoy Nambiar’s last directorial project was Wazir, starring Amitabh Bachchan and Farhan Akhtar in the lead roles. However, now Bejoy has said that there are some changes in the cast as well. I am a very big admirer of Bejoy’s films, and have waited for months to be part of his film. “Right now we are not working on this film. Agni Nachathiram, the Tamil action-drama, was the story of two brothers, one who is legitimate and the other who is not, and how their relationship transforms with time. Early this year, Bejoy was busy rewriting the Tamil version of Ratnam’s 1988 film Agni Nachathiram in Hindi. It’s not shelved. We have put this film on hold for sometime.

We can’t give out any details right now regarding the casting of the film,” Bejoy said. It is inappropriate to talk about the reason for the delay in the shoot of this film,” Bejoy said.
