“It Was Sridevi’s Wish That I Produce A Tamil Film,” Says Boney Emotionally

 Boney Kapoor has extremely ambivalent  feelings about his  first Tamil production Nerkonda Paarvai , a remake  of the harditting Hindi film Pink which opens in the coming week.

Says  Boney emotionally, “While  I am really happy with how the  film has shaped up I miss my wife now more than ever before. It was her wish that I produce a  film in Tamil. I wish it would have happened  during her lifetime.”

 Boney reveals that  the much-missed diva  had set out to produce a film in Tamil  years ago. “Sri and  her mother had decided to  produce a Tamil film starring the legendary M G Ramachandran. But the  project  couldn’t proceed beyond  the Mahurat  puja.  Ever since then Sri was  looking forward to producing  a Tamil  film. And  not just Tamil  , she also wanted me  to  venture into all the other South Indian languages, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada…By producing Nerkonda Paarvai I am finally giving shape to her dreams.”

The film stars the iconic  Tamil actor Ajith in the role of the lawyer fighting a sexual harassment case whichAmitabh Bachchan played in  the  original Hindi film Pink.

Sridevi and Ajith had worked together  briefly in the Tamil version  of English Vinglish.And she felt he was  the  right actor  for  the role.

 Says  Boney gratefully, “I owe my  career and my life  to the South Indian film industry.  A majority of my productions have been  remakes of  Tamil and Telugu films.So my career was made in the South.And the South gave me my  life, my wife.”
