Mumbai, Jan 19 (IANS) Hollywood musical comedy-drama, “Begin Again”, starring Mark Ruffalo, Keira Knightley and Adam Levine, will get a Bollywood adaptation. It will be helmed by “Veere Di Wedding” director Shashanka Ghosh.

The Hollywood film revolved around a chance encounter between a struggling record-label executive (Ruffalo) and a young singer-songwriter (Knightley), new to Manhattan, which turns into a promising collaboration between the two talents.

The scripting for the Hindi adaptation is presently underway with Arshad Syed as the writer.

“We want to tell a story about the world of music and fresh voices in sound on the Indian scene. And through that, a take on urban relationships that don’t necessarily mean love and marriage and happily ever after,” Ghosh said in a statement.

“The worlds explored here are deeper than surface level – heart, hurt, passion, and above all – music.”

For the film, Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series and Vikram Malhotra-led Abundantia Entertainment have come together.

Producer Bhushan Kumar said: “‘Begin Again’ will give us an opportunity to create music that is the most important element of the film.

“The original film is a masterpiece that is appreciated by critics as well as the audiences. The film is still in the writing process but I hope to get together the best of the soundtracks from our musicians to make a unique music album.”

Producer Vikram Malhotra added: “It’s a soul-stirring film with disarming emotional candour and intimacy. The film’s music is brilliantly woven into the story.”

Since the film is still in its scripting stage, the director said: “We would like to finish the script, and ideally the music, before we cast.”
