Recently there were some reports that director Ali Abbas Zafar will direct superstar Salman Khan in the remake of South Korean drama film Ode to My Father. But the director has not confirmed the reports yet.
When asked about the same Ali told reporters, “It’s too early to speak about it. First, I am going to start ‘Tiger Zinda Hai,’ next month. That’s my next film. I am excited about teaming up with Salman again. It is always great to work with him.”
He was speaking at the special screening of Shoojit Sircar’s upcoming production, Running Shaadi, last night.
Ode to My Father was directed by Yoon Je-kyoon and represented 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 Atul Agnihotri. The Hindi film will reportedly be set during India-Pakistan partition.
