In a significant development for Indian cinema, Karan Johar's Dharma Productions and Guneet Monga's Sikhya Entertainment have come together to recreate the magic of the French comedy gem 'The Intouchables' in Hindi. This delightful project will be directed by Collin D'Cunha.
Originally released in 2011, 'The Intouchables' directed by Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache garnered immense praise for its heartwarming story and the brilliant performances of Francois Cluzet and Omar Sy in the leading roles.
Karan Johar, sharing his thoughts about this exciting venture, stated, "Bringing 'The Intouchables' to life in an Indian context is both a creative challenge and a thrilling opportunity. We are devoted to capturing the essence of this beloved French film while adding our own cultural touch to Indian audiences. Partnering with Guneet again is a promising prospect, and I'm confident this project will touch the hearts of viewers across the nation."
Guneet Monga expressed her enthusiasm by saying, "The Intouchables is iconic and celebrated worldwide. It's truly thrilling to introduce this gem to Indian audiences in Hindi. After the action-packed 'KILL', we are exploring the dramedy genre, which showcases the diverse range of our collaboration with Dharma, something we are incredibly excited about."
Director Collin D'Cunha, who will be steering this project, shared his excitement, "Directing the adaptation of 'The Intouchables' is a tremendous honor for me as a filmmaker. The original film made a profound impact on audiences globally, and I'm honored to have the opportunity to bring this story to life for Indian viewers. Collaborating with Karan Johar, Guneet Monga, and the entire team is something I'm greatly looking forward to."
