Phantom Reliance Entertainment (that’s lead by Anil Ambani) announced today about their latest venture: to remake the hugely popular French social drama film La Famille Belier, in multiple Indian languages simultaneously. The said film will be globally distributed by Reliance Entertainment.
The 2014 release La Famille Belier was directed by Eric Lartigau and was greeted with critical acclaim and commercial success. The film, which had been written by Victoria Bedos, Stanislas Carre de Malberg, Eric Lartigau and Thomas Bidegain, is about a girl’s journey (played by Louane Emera) and her quest in fulfilling her dream of becoming a singer.
Speaking about the film, Anurag Kashyap (who is a self-confessed ardent admirer of French cinema) said that he really liked the film and with suitable changes in sensibilities, it will be an interesting tale for the cinegoers. On the other hand, Vikas Bahl (who is busy with developing the subject in multiple languages) said that La Famille Belier was a beautiful story that is bound to echo with the Indian sensibilities and culture. He added that the reason as to why they are making the film in multiple languages is that they wanted to reach out to as big an audience as possible.
