Director M Padmakumar

How did your Bollywood debut happen?

It was the success of 'Joseph' that paved the way for my Bollywood debut. It was the emotional thriller track of the film that excited production houses from other languages prompting them to ask for the rights. And the Tamil and Hindi producers wanted me to remake the film. That’s how I made the Tamil film ‘Visithiran', produced by Tamil director Bala. Shamna Kasim and RK Suresh are the main leads. We started the Bollywood film after finishing the Tamil film.


The crew of the Hindi film...

All are from Bollywood. Thankfully Santhosh Thundiyil who hails from Kerala is the cinematographer.


Are there any changes in the Hindi one?

There are no big changes in the story, but we are of course tweaking the terrain to suit the Hindi audience. It will be more colourful and of course, there will be more songs.
