Aamir Khan’s blockbuster film ‘Taare Zameen Par’ released in the year 2007 garnered a lot of appreciation for its concept about an 8-year-old dyslexic boy who was sent to a boarding school. That’s true who would really forget that little Ishaan Awasthi essayed by actor Darsheel Safari who was flawless in the role.
To mark the 60th anniversary Indo-China diplomatic ties in 2010, Taare Zameen par was among nine films that were screened in China with English subtitles. However, as per the latest reports in Mumbai mirror a trade source claimed that Taare Zameen Par was not officially released in the Chinese market even though it was one of the highest rated foreign films on a popular Chinese film ‘Douban’. But China does not permit the release of foreign films which were older than two years. But since the film delves with human emotions, a decision of remaking it with local actors was taken.
The Chinese remake of ‘Taare Zameen Par’ will be directed by Ma Duo. He was earlier an assistant director to the Jiang wen classic ‘Let the Bullets Fly’. The project preparation is still at the ground level.
