Boney Kapoor seems to be having a great career ever since he ventured into Tamil cinema. The producer, who remade the Amitabh Bachchan-starrer Pink in Tamil, has now acquired the rights of the Tamil film Comali to release it in Hindi and other languages. Boney acquired the film’s rights through his company Bayview Projects, and will remake the Hindi version with his actor-son Arjun Kapoor.
He also plans to make the film in Telugu and Kannada. "We are pleased to have acquired remake rights of Comali for all languages in the world. In Hindi remake, Arjun will star,” he said.
Comali is about a man who faces difficulties in adjusting with present times after waking up from coma. Boney is currently producing Maidaan with Ajay Devgn. Helmed by Amit Sharma, it is based on the golden era of Indian football. His first Telugu film, an official remake of Badhaai Ho is all set to roll soon.
In other news, the Rajasthan High Court on Friday ordered the quashing of an FIR lodged against Boney on charges of duping an investor of INR2.5 crore in the name of organising a Celebrity Cricket League. The alleged victim, Praveen Shyam Sethi, a resident of Ramnagaria in Jagatpura, registered an FIR in June this year against three people namely Boney,Mustafa Raj and the director of the Signature Cricket Leagu, Pawan Jangid. Now, a legal team from Boney's office has confirmed that the FIR has been quashed against him but not against the other two accused. The order copy from the court is yet to come but the judgement is out. The court had reserved the verdict on September 16 after hearing both the sides and on Friday, while announcing the verdict, it quashed the FIR against Kapoor. Boney is now clear of all charges.
