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