Mumbai: The Hindi dubbed version of the blockbuster Turkish series Fatmagul was aired twice on Zindagi . But that doesn’t stop Star Plus from thinking of remaking it in the very same language in which it was already dubbed as Star Plus is set to launch Amala (Kya Qusoor Hai Amala Ka?), the Indian remake of the Fatmagul on 3rd April.
The story follows a young woman who must overcome a horrific group assault while confronting conflicting feelings for one of her attackers.
Star Plus has acquired the remake rights of Fatmagul from Eccho Rights that represent the syndication opportunity for the series worldwide.
Nixon Yau Lim, the head of the Asia Pacific at Eccho Right, said: “Amala is one of the most anticipated releases of the year. Given the phenomenal success of the original from Ay Yapim, Star has a huge title on their hands. The first impression is that they have a truly beautiful production which both honors the original script as well as putting a unique local spin on it.”
Lim added: “Many territories are already showing a strong interest [in the finished series] based on this short trailer, as well as the reputation of the original scripts of course.”
