Five of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla's movies will soon be adapted in India!
ABS-CBN Films has forged a deal with India’s Global One Studios for the adaptation of five of its box office hits starring Philippines’ box office stars KathNiel namely “Barcelona: A Love Untold,” “Can’t Help Falling In Love,” “Crazy Beautiful You,” “She’s Dating The Gangster,” and “The Hows Of Us."
“We are thrilled to have our movies adapted for the Indian market. It is a welcome opportunity for ABS-CBN Films to share our well-loved and heartfelt Philippine stories and become a source of inspiration for global audiences,” ABS-CBN Films Managing Director Olivia Lamasan said.
“The Philippines and India share many common values, among which is the strong love for family that resonates in our films and will soon be experienced by the people of India.”
The deal marks the first time for Filipino movies to get an Indian adaptation, where its multi-billion-dollar cinema market, also known as Bollywood, produces about 800 films and sells about four billion tickets.
Global One Studios President Ramesh Krishnamoorthy is also elated to team up with ABS-CBN Films to bring its box-office hits to Bollywood.
“We are happy to be associated with ABS-CBN Films to bring their well-crafted love stories to the people of India by adapting their heartrending films in Indian languages. Family bonding and cultural values are common to both Philippines and India which are captured seamlessly in their films."
"This will be the first time that five Filipino films will be remade in India and we are excited to join hands with ABS-CBN to showcase their relationship stories with the same intense and emotions through our films," he said.
The move, which also coincides with KathNiel's 10th anniversary as a love team, is part of ABS-CBN's push to further expand globally by bringing its content across different continents and platforms.
