Interestingly, we hear that several producers had lined up to bag the remake rights to the original. A source tells us, “Karan Johar was also trying to get the rights to make Master in Hindi. He was trying really hard but when Murad got a hang of it, he quietly raised his price and bagged the deal.”
The same source shares that a whopping amount was quoted from Cine 1 Studios. “Murad is keen on making several remakes in the next few years. There’s Thadam, then there’s Namak Halal and now, Master. He paid over Rs. 6 crore just for the rights. He had earlier paid around Rs. 4-5 crore for Arjun Reddy‘s official rights, but the moment he heard KJo is also at the other end, he raised his amount and got it. The team is now putting it all together and reworking the script for the Hindi audience. Casting will happen only once the scripting is done.”
