Bollywood filmmaker Bejoy Nambiar, known for his movie ‘Shaitan,’ has reportedly bought the Hindi remake rights of horror-thriller ‘Pizza’ for Rs.1.10cr.
“I have bought the Hindi remake rights of ‘Pizza’, but I won’t direct it. I intend to produce the film under my banner Getaway Films. We are in the process of zeroing in on the cast and director. Once we are done with all that, I’ll make the official announcement,” said Bejoy Nambiar, director of Vikram-Jeeva’s David.
’Pizza’, which was made at a shoestring budget of Rs.1.5cr, was the recent surprise hit in Kollywood. It revolves around a pizza delivery boy, played by Vijay Sethupathi, whose life undergoes dramatic changes during one of his home delivery trips.
