When he was asked about his take on films being remade in other languages, he said that it was a good thing as people from other regions too, can enjoy the film.
He said, “So many movies of mine were remade in Hindi by Priyadarshan. My films were remade in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Kannada. When we get a good subject, it can be remade in all languages.
