Even as their horror-comedy continues to make merry at the box-office, Stree director Amar Kaushik, and the film’s producer, Dinesh Vijan, have started work on their next collaboration.
The film is the official Hindi adaptation of Samruoddhi Porey’s 2011 Marathi film, Mala Aai Vhhaychay! (I Want To Be A Mother!) Which deals with the contentious issue of surrogacy against the backdrop of the colorful world of a Lavni dancer in the interiors of Maharashtra.
Director Amar Kaushik in a recent interview stated that he loves ma-bachchon ki Kahani [mother-children stories] and also revealed that this one is based on a true story. He added that the cases came to a practicing lawyer named Samruddhi Porey who practices at Bombay High Court.
Mala Aai Vhaaychay bagged the National Award for the Best Marathi Film in 2011. Producer Dinesh Vijan mentioned that the work on the Hindi remake has already kicked off with his writer Sita Menon working on the script for the past one year.
He concluded in reports adding that the story is currently being written taking new surrogacy laws under consideration. The actors for the Hindi version of the film are yet to be finalized.
