Mumbai: National Award-winning Telugu director Neelakanta is all set to make his big Bollywood debut. His Telugu film Maaya will be remade in Hindi as Murder 4 and will be produced by Mahesh Bhatt.
“I am thrilled that I got this opportunity to direct a Hindi film. I admire director Mahesh Bhatt and now I am directing a film under his production. It’s a dream comes true for me,” says Neelakanta.
He adds that Mahesh loved the Telugu film. “He liked the way I treated the film and also the styling. Immediately he told me that I would be directing the Hindi film too,” says Neelakanta, adding that he would be making a few small changes in the remake to suit Hindi audiences.
About the title he says that since Mahesh Bhatt’s Murder series is popular, this one would be titled Murder 4. “The cast will be announced in a week,” he adds.
