Anurag Kashyap, one of the most original voices among contemporary directors, would be remaking a foreign language film, for his next Bollywood adventure. In his underproduction Dobaraa Kashyap is doing a remake of a Spanish film. His first attempt to adapt from foreign sources.
The original Spanish film entitled Mirage directed by Oriol Paulo is a time-travel drama about a young mother trying to excavate her a daughter from the past. The film is available on Netflix.
According to sources, one of the film’s producers bought the remake rights of three of Oriol Paulo’s Spanish films together. One of them The Invisible Guest was remade into Hindi as Badlaa and featured Taapsee Pannu and Amitabh Bachchan,playing a murderous game against one another.
