One of Hollywood’s biggest hits of the last year was the film Enchanted, by Disney. The film was about an animated princess who ends up in 2007 Manhattan after a wicked Stepmother pushes her through a magic fountain. Of course, she meets a romantic interest, a divorce lawyer, but then things get complicated when her Prince and the wicked Stepmother from her animated world follow her. But I do not want to give away too much of the plot. Now three different films in Bollywood are going to use this story as inspiration for their versions.
The films, all ready in the pre-production stage, each have their own unique idea of who would be perfect for the cast. One filmmaker has decided that he will find newcomers to make his story come to life. A second director’s script is ready, has his two stars signed and he is getting ready to begin filming. The third version of this wonderful story looks to be the one with the biggest budget. The director not only wants to cast one of THE Khans to play the princess’s Manhattan romantic interest, he also would love to cast either Kajol, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan or Kareena Kapoor as the princess in the new world.
It will be very interesting to see how each of these three films come together and who will enchant audiences. We will keep you up to date on news about all three exciting films so keep watching this space!
