Director, producer Subhash revealed that he has been approached by many industry directors for remakes of his films, “Many directors from the industry come to me to ask if they can make remakes of my films. I won’t be making remakes; these films are my vision and creation. I don’t want to change them; if I am working on a film project it will be new.  I have a production house, now I am a producer so if other directors approach me for remakes, they are most welcome.”
He further added, “Many times the remake turns out great at time sit does not, there is risk involved. I have been offered remakes for most of my film, but I decide on bases of who is going to make it.”
