Filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra wants to direct the Hollywood version of Amitabh Bachchan-Farhan Akhtar starrer “Wazir”, says his frequent collaborator Abhijaat Joshi.

“He (Vidhu Vinod Chopra) was going to direct this in Hollywood. And for four years we wrote the script that he wanted to direct.

“Right now he got interested in Bejoy Nambiar’s work and he showed him the scripts that we had. Bejoy picked this one (“Wazir”) and he sat with him for two years adapting it in Hindi,” Joshi told PTI.

The germ of the idea for Chopra’s upcoming home production film “Wazir” came up in 1988 initially.

“It was originally conceived on September 11, 1988 and that is when I read this piece of news. It is that time when I wrote the first draft and that time it was called ‘Chess’ and then when I met writer Abhijaat Joshi in 1994 and discussed this with him,” Chopra added.
