Imran Khan wasn’t convinced about ‘Kalyana Samayal Saadham’ hindi remake

imran-khan-wallpaper-21-12x9Actor Imran Khan says he had “opted out” of the Hindi remake of Tamil film “Kalyana Samayal Saadham” (KSS) as he was not convinced about how it would turn out in Bollywood.

His comment comes after news emerged that “Pyaar Ka Punchnama” actor Kartik Aaryan has replaced Imran in the Hindi remake of the film post the latter’s debacle of “Katti Batti”.

The Hindi remake, which is yet untitled, is being helmed by Aanand L Rai.

Talking about it, Imran said in a statement: “I had been approached for the remake of KSS in early 2014, and while I liked the Tamil version, I asked the director to come to me with a bound script of the Hindi adaptation.

“They made a lot of media announcements about the project, but over a year later, I still hadn’t seen a single page. Without a written script, I was not convinced that it would translate well as a Hindi film, so I opted out of the project in mid-2015.

“That was the last I heard about it, but I do wish them the best of luck with their film. I hope this clarifies any doubt, and removes my name entirely from this project.” shares Imran.
