'Billu is not remake of any film'


Thu, Feb 12, 2009 21:00 IST

Shahrukh Khan Though it may be inspired from a Malayalam film, the writer of 'Billu' maintains the movie is very different from its predecessors.

The popular notion is that Shahrukh Khan 's home production Billu Barber is a remake of Malayalam hit 'Katha Parayumbol' (2007), which was made in Tamil as Kuselan in 2008.

But Mushtaq Sheikh, the co-writer of 'Billu' along with director Priyadarshan , claims the movie bears no resemblance to the aforesaid two films.




"'Billu' is a completely different film. When you see 'Billu', you will know what I mean. The screenplay of 'Billu' does not follow the route followed by the predecessors," Mushtaq, who has written and compiled books on SRK, is quoted as saying.

When suggested that the screenplay in 'Billu' was perhaps tweaked a little to make it different from 'Kuselan' after the Rajnikant starrer bombed at the box office, Mushtaq maintained: "One did not have to tweak it. One had to change it completely. I repeat - this film is a re-birth of 'Billu'. It's a brand new film with no connection with any other film".

Mushtaq believes the fate of 'Kuselan' won't have any negative effect on the box office prospects of 'Billu'.

Set for release on February 13, Billu stars Irrfan Khan and Lara Dutta as a couple in a village. Besides SRK, the movie has guest appearances from Kareena Kapoor , Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra .
