Sudhir Mishra, who helmed the 1996 thriller Is Raat Ki Subha Nahin, is all set to remake the film. The original, starring Tara Deshpande, Nirmal Pandey and Smriti Mishra, was a story which unravels in a single night. It revolved around Pandey, an advertising executive and his beautiful wife Tara, but it was his secret affair with Smriti which was the catalyst for a major part of the plot.
"This time the story will be set in Delhi. I will modify the plot a little and make it more contemporary," said Mishra who will start shooting the film after he finishes Mehrunissa, which starts in April next year.
The cast is still to be finalised. Unlike the original which was produced by Mukesh Bhatt and Amit Khanna, the sequel will be produced by Reliance Entertainment.
