Shahrukh, Ranbir to share screen space

The Badshah of Bollywood Shahrukh Khan and the heartthrob of Bollywood Ranbir Kapoor will share screen space in the Hindi remake of Bengali film, ‘Autograph’.

In the film, Shahrukh Khan will be seen in the role of a fading superstar and Ranbir Kapoor a young director. In the original version, superstar of Bengali cinema Prosenjeet has played the lead role. The Hindi version will be directing by Srijit Mukherjee and produced by Madhu Mantena. 

Mantena doesn't deny the remake plans. "I think the era of remakes from regional languages into Hindi is back.

We just need to make sure the regional flavour is not lost in Hindi. Ghajini was a smash-hit Telugu to Hindi remake. I am talking to at least five major Tamil-Telugu blockbuster directors about making their own films in Hindi." But the transition has to be complete. "As much as we would have liked Prosenjeet to play the superstar in the Hindi adaptation, it won't work. We need a pan-India superstar." So SRK it is? "I'm not saying anything at the moment," he smiles.
