“Sajid Nadiadwala is the frontrunner to bag the remake rights of this invasion action thriller. The ace producer is among the biggest in Bollywood and believes that the plot of Beast has the potential to be tweaked into a mainstream action franchise. He is looking to adapt the screenplay rather than remaking it. The talks are on,” a source told Bollywood Hungama.

Sajid has also bought the remake rights to a number of films from the South in the past. “However, unlike others in showbiz, Sajid often rewrites the screenplay by just playing around the core idea of the original. The plot of Baaghi was similar to Varsham, but the treatment was totally different. Same with Kick, which seemed like a completely fresh product. Ditto for the soon to be released Bachchan Pandey. Sajid believes in giving a fresh approach to all the ideas, rather than blindly remaking them. He plans to do the same with Beast as well. The producer will have acquired the script and all sorts of rights of Beast in Hindi, once the deal is locked,” the trade source says.
