Helen, the 2019-released blockbuster is one of the finest survival thrillers ever made in the Malayalam cinema. The movie, which featured talented young actress Anna Ben in the titular role, was highly appreciated by both the Malayali and non-Malayali audiences. If the latest reports are to be believed, Helen is all set to get a Hindi remake soon.
According to the latest reports, the Hindi remake rights of the Anna Ben starrer, which is directed by Mathukutty Xavier is already sold. The rumour mills suggest that young actress Janhvi Kapoor is likely to play the titular character, Helen, in the Hindi remake of the survival thriller.
The project will be jointly bankrolled by Janhvi Kapoor's father, the senior producer Boney Kapoor and Zee Studios. Reportedly, the makers are currently busy with finalising the rest of the star cast and technical crew of the project. The Hindi remake of Helen is expected to have an official launch very soon.
Helen, which marked the directorial debut of Mathukutty Xavier, revolves around a simple girl named Helen who gets trapped inside the refrigerator of the restaurant she works. Anna Ben, who played titular character Helen, earned rave reviews for her performance in the movie, which is produced by the multi-faceted talent Vineeth Sreenivasan. Anna's performance in the movie has been considered as the finest performance by an actress in the Malayalam cinema of recent times.
Along with Anna Ben, Helen featured an ensemble star cast including senior actor-filmmaker Lal, Noble Babu Thomas, Aju Varghese, Ronny David, Binu Pappu, Jayaraj, Lakshmi Marikkar, and so on. Along with the Hindi remake, Helen is also getting remade into the Tamil, Telugu, and Kannada, languages, very soon.
