Bollywood Superstar Shah Rukh Khan has acquired the remake rights of Kamal Hassan's Hey Ram, in which he had played an extended cameo. Kamal Hassan broke the news in a recent interaction with the press. 

He said in a statement,"Shah Rukh only got a wristwatch for acting in my film at the time because, by the end of it, I had nothing left in hand. I am glad that he got the Hindi rights of Hey Ram from Bharat Bhai (co-producer Bharat Shah). He should have some memory of the film as he gave his friendship and service for it."

The discussions about the rights of the film apparently took place when Kamal and Shah Rukh met with Hollywood filmmaker Christopher Nolan recently.

Hey Ram, produced and directed by Kamal, faced severe opposition from various political parties across the country during the time of its release, due to allegations that the film portrayed Mahatma Gandhi in a grey shade. But the film fetched three National awards and went on to become India's submission for the Academy Awards. 

Apart from Kamal Hassan and Shah Rukh Khan, the film had an ensemble cast of actors like  Hema Malini, Naseeruddin Shah, Om Puri, Atul Kulkarni, and Nassar. 

Shah Rukh Khan who played Amjid Ali Khan, a close friend of Kamal Hassan's character in Hey Ram, is yet to disclose his remake plans for the film.
