Andha Dhun Remake? Okay, says Ayushmann, But There’s A Problem

One  of Tamil cinema’s most accomplished actors Siddharth Suriya has expressed  a keen interest in remaking  the Ayushmann Khurrana thriller  Adha Dhun.

Ayushmann is game. But he has   a huge misgiving about  the tenability  of the remake.  “Mere teraf se toh haan hai(it’s a  yes from  my side). But can  a remake  of a thriller work? The suspense element is already out  in the public domain. So unless you tweak the  suspense and tamper with the final denouement  there’s  no way a remake  of  a suspense film can work.The audience  already knows what  you don’t want them to know.”

Not that Ayushmann is against remakes per se.

“I have done a remake of  a Tamil film Kalyana Samayal Saadham. But that was  a comedy . Our remake Shubh MangalSavdhan was able to modify the  original film’s flavour  , change the  cultural contexts, make it a different  film.With a suspense  film you can’t do that.You have to be  absolutely faithful to the original. Having said that, I can’t wait to see whatSiddharth  does in the remake,” says Ayushmann with genuine curiosity.
