Kashmakash a shorter version of Nauka Dubi, says producer Subhash Ghai
When asked the reason behind the title change for the Hindi version of the film, producer Subhash Ghai told DearCinema, “The film is based on Tagore’s work Nauka Dubi. It is the director’s translation of the work and he decided to keep the name Nauka Dubi. But we wanted to make a shorter version over here. We wanted Gulzar sahaab to write the lyrics in Hindi on the tunes of the same Rabindra Sangeet. So there were a lot of changes and we decided to change the title to ‘dilemma’, that is Kashmakash.”
The producer also said that the script for the Hindi film has been interspersed with songs in a greater number.
The film which is produced by Subhash Ghai’s banner Mukta Searchlight will have a bilingual release on May 20.
“I personally feel this is a tribute from our side to Rabindranath Tagore on his 150th birth anniversary. I have always been a fan of Tagore’s work and I have grown up watching Bengali cinema”, Ghai told DearCinema.
