One day after Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, Tiger Zinda Hai was released, the filmmakers of the film Malayalam Take Off have revealed that they have abandoned the idea of remaking their hit movie in Hindi.
Director Mahesh Narayan has archived the Hindi remake because even Tiger Zinda Hai revolves around similar incidents that were portrayed so passionately in Take Off, which was released earlier this year.
Conversations for the new Hindi version of the movie Malayalam were in the final stages. Jet Airways was expected to venture into the film business by financing the Hindi version of Take Off, Manorama Online reported.
The takeoff was based on real-life events involving a group of Malayan nurses who were captured when ISIS terrorists took the city of Tikrit, the hometown of former dictator Saddam Hussein, in 2014. The news caught the attention of the country as everyone was concerned about their safety. The film followed the spooky experience of the nurses and the efforts of the Indian government led by a daring diplomat, played by Fahadh Faasil.
The actor Parvathy Menon played the central character called Sameera, while Kunchacko Boban played the role of her husband, Shaheed.
Tiger Zinda Hai’s trailer showed that the film focuses on a James Bond-like spy named Tiger, played by Salman Khan, and his mission to rescue 25 Indian nurses from the clutches of ISIS. The film also stars Katrina Kaif as the female lead. It is the second film of the franchise after Ek Tha Tiger, which came out in 2012. The next spy thriller is directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and is produced by Aditya Chopra for Yash Raj Films.
