Does NAUTANKI SAALA have a French connection?

It is the season of remakes and everyone seems to be taking pride in making them! Recently even the Bhatts’ admitted to their inspiration for ‘Murder 3’ was a Spanish film. Bollywood is certainly opening up but are remakes just in vogue currently or are they here to stay?

So is the case of Rohan Sippy’s upcoming movie after a long hiatus – NAUTANKI SAALA. zoOm found out that the movie starring dimpled Ayushmann Khurrana and Kunal Roy Kapoor is actually based on a French romcom – Apres Vous (After You). While ‘After You’ has a restaurant backdrop, NAUTANKI SAALA’s plot revolves around theatre. Reportedly, a lot of elements from the French inspiration are reflected in NAUTANKI SAALA. What’s more… the makers have apparently given due credit to the original movie!

How true are these rumors… only time will tell! To know more, tune into Planet Bollywood News every day at 7 pm on zoOm – India’s No. 1 Bollywood Channel.
