For those who felt that Shekar Suman's son Adhyayan Suman had done the vanishing act, the news is that he is back with a remake of the Hollywood hit medical thriller "Awake". To be titled "Heartless", the film will mark the directorial debut of Shekhar Suman and will have Giselle Monteiro, who will be playing Jessica's part in the film.
Adhyayan, who is really excited to work with Giselle, is slated to play Hayden Christensen's part in the adaptation. The filmmakers are in touch with the Weinstein Company to buy the rights of the original film to avoid any copyright issues later on. While the famous Page 3 writer Nina Arora has been working on the script and the screenplay, Niranjan Iyengar has written the dialogues. Adhyayan, who has just wrapped up shooting for Milind Ukey's "Dehradun Diaries", added that the film supposed to start last year, but got stalled. Now they are waiting for Nina's new draft of the script.
The father-son duo of Shekhar-Adhyayan have already worked on four to five songs for their film, with a new music director Gaurav Dagaonkar, who, incidentally has also composed music for the Akshay-Sonakshi starrer "Joker". Adhyayan, who is all set to start the film around May, feels that no one in Bollywood has ever tried their hands at a medical thriller till date.
