Director Raju Murugan’s Joker, which hit the screens only recently had come in for praise from the critics and the masses alike. The film, which highlights societal problems and seeks to create an awareness in the masses in an entertaining fashion, is still drawing crowds to the theatres.
At this juncture, there have been rumours in the industry that the film is likely to be remade in Hindi and Telugu. Director Raju Murugan has issued a statement clarifying his stand on the issue.
In the statement, he says, “I would love to remake the film in Hindi. There have also been offers from the Telugu industry for remaking it in that language. The producer of the film has been making all the right efforts in this regard. I have been asked as to which language I will remake the film. I have to decide about that only after this point. I can do such films only when favourable circumstances prevail. As of now, I am penning the story of my next film, which will be completely of a different genre from Joker or Cuckoo.”
