MUMBAI: Producer Boney Kapoor has bought the rights of Egyptian hit “Hepta:The Last Lecture” to remake it in Hindi and other languages.
The film will be produced by Kapoor’s Bayview Projects and co-produced by Fresh Lime Films.
Based on Mohamed Sadek’s best-selling book, “Hepta”, directed by Hadi El Bagoury, revolves around the seven stages of love and was one of the highest-grossing romantic films in the history of Egyptian cinema.
“India and Egypt have been strongly influencing each other’s culture, arts and architecture since ancient times. It is a pleasure to cooperate with Egyptian cinema.
“I strongly believe that this is only the beginning and we shall soon be seeing films from Egypt and India being remade in their respective languages,” Kapoor said in a statement.
He is also remaking “Pink” in Tamil titled AK 59 with south superstar Ajith which is currently being shot. (AGENCIES)
