Too soon to talk: Ali on ‘Ode to My Fa­ther’ re­make with Sal­man

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Film­maker Ali Ab­bas Za­far (above) has cho­sen not to di­vulge in­for­ma­tion on his sup­posed third col­lab­o­ra­tion with ac­tor Sal­man Khan (above right), which is ap­par­ently the re­make of South Korean drama film Ode to My Fa­ther.

Sal­man and Ali to­gether gave a hit, Sul­tan, last year, and have teamed up again for the se­quel of Ek Tha Tiger, ti­tled Tiger Zinda Hai.

There were re­ports that the duo will also work on the In­dian adap­ta­tion of Ode To My Fa­ther.

When asked about the same Ali says, “It's too early to speak about it. First, I am go­ing to start Tiger Zinda Hai, next month. I am ex­cited about team­ing up with Sal­man again. It is al­ways great to work with him.”

Ode to My Fa­ther, the 2014 drama, was di­rected by Yoon Je-ky­oon and rep­re­sented the Korean his­tory. It is a story about a young boy’s prom­ise made dur­ing the chaos of the Korean War to take care of his fam­ily, which ends up span­ning 60 years of tur­bu­lent modern his­tory.

The film’s re­make rights have been bought by Sal­man’s brother-in-law, film­maker, Atul Ag­ni­hotri. The Hindi film will re­port­edly be set dur­ing In­dia-Pak­istan par­ti­tion.
