Kannada film Dia's remake rights in demand
Filmmakers are interested in remaking the romantic thriller, which is doing well after its OTT release
The remake rights of KS Ashoka’s directorial Dia, which is currently doing well online after its release on Amazon Prime, is in great demand. According to producer Krishna Chaitanya, he has received at least 60 calls so far from filmmakers who are interested in remaking the film in their respective languages.
However, the production house is yet to take a call. “There have been talks about remaking Dia in other languages, and one filmmaker has come forward to take the rights for all the languages. We are having discussions with him,” says Krishna, adding, “The demand is mostly coming from Telugu filmmakers, who are keen to have Dia made in their language. A producer from the US is also keen to take up the dubbing rights for the Telugu version and release it in theatres. However, nothing has been finalised, and we are yet to close the deal.”
Dia is the second outing of director Ashoka after 6-5=2. The widely-appreciated romantic thriller features Kushee, Pruthvi Ambar, and Deekhsith. While it has no songs, the background score has been composed by Ajaneesh B Loknath. The crew also included two cinematographers — Vishal Vittal and Sourabh Waghmare.
