Producer Mansi Bagla has signed director G Ashok for the Hindi remakes of three South Indian films, whose rights have been acquired by her. However, the names of the films are yet to be revealed. In turn, Bagla will make her directorial debut with a Marathi film, which will be produced by the filmmaker. The Marathi film will be a remake of the Telugu feature Ninnu Kori (2017).
G Ashok is currently busy with his upcoming film Durgavati (2020), which stars Bhumi Pednekar in the lead. The film, which is the official Hindi remake of his own Telugu supernatural thriller Bhaagamathie (2018), will mark his entry into Hindi films.
Speaking about these ventures, Bagla said in an official statement, “Acquiring rights of three South films and contemplating my directorial debut has not happened overnight. It’s the result of a robust groundwork along with my team for years. I'm a self-starter and self-learner and I needed a mentor to help shape me realise my dreams. G Ashok sir has filled the void, not only with his experience in film making but also his approach towards work.”
She added, “Every conversation is a learning experience, I have only started out and there is a long way to go.”
The duo is also working on developing a horror-comedy with Dream Girl (2019) writer and director Raaj Shaandilyaa.
