After 'Kill', Karan Johar's Dharma Productions and Guneet Monga's Sikhya Entertainment are now collaborating to remake the French comedy classic 'The Intouchables' in Hindi.
Collin D'Cunha will oversee the project as its director. The 2011 original film adaptation of "The Intouchables" was helmed by Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano. It was widely praised for its heartfelt story and the superb acting of Francois Cluzet and Omar Sy in the key parts.
Speaking about the new project, Karan said in a statement, "Working on The Intouchables is a creative challenge and a thrilling opportunity. We are committed to bringing the essence of this beloved French film to the Indian audience while infusing it with our cultural sensibilities. Collaborating with Guneet once again is an exciting prospect, and I am confident that this project will touch the hearts of viewers across the country."
Guneet Monga also expressed her excitement. "The Intouchables is iconic and one of the most celebrated films around the world. It is very exciting to be able to bring that to India and Hindi audiences. After a high-octane, action-packed KILL, we are laying our hands on dramedy, which signifies the range of the spectrum of our collaboration with Dharma, which we are incredibly excited about," she added.
Director Collin D'Cunha shared his enthusiasm for helming this project, saying, "Directing 'The Intouchables' adaptation is an incredible honour for me as a filmmaker. The original film left an indelible mark on audiences worldwide, and I am honoured to have the opportunity to bring this story to life for Indian viewers.
