Actor Uday Chopra, who is busy taking care of his home banner Yash Raj Films' (YRF) Hollywood wing, says he plans to direct a film and it may be a Hollywood project. But he also has his heart set on remaking his late father and veteran filmmaker Yash Chopra's "Kala Patthar".
Will you debut with a Hollywood film?
"Maybe yes...may be in Hollywood. I have the feeling inside me, but at the moment there is so much to be done. I have to make a name for my company," Uday, who will soon be seen on the big screen in "Dhoom 3", told IANS in an interview here.
Uday, who now lives in Los Angeles, says he has produced two Hollywood films there under YRF Entertainment.
"I have produced two Hollywood films, the first film ('Grace of Monaco') comes out in March. It stars Nicole Kidman and the other film is called 'The Longest Week'. Those films were already ready to go, I put in money and kind of took them forward. Now I am developing two other movies. I have almost cracked the deal with the director," he said.
If he had to remake any of his father's films, which one would it be?
"I would love to make 'Kala Patthar'. I am a very action kind of a guy. I love action and sci-fi, but 'Kala Patthar' in today's day and age, with little twists and turns will be really good. 'Kala Patthar' did well for its time, but it could have done better. I think this is one film which I would love to remake," he said.
"Kala Patthar", released in 1979, starred Amitabh Bachchan and Shashi Kapoor in key roles.
