The 1994 Malayalam film Pavithram starring Mohanlal, Shobhana, Srividya, and Thilakan was the main source of inspiration for the recent Hindi superhit Hindi film Badhaai Ho.
The basic plot of both the films is about how a young son played by Mohanlal gets affected after his mom (SriVidya) gets pregnant in her early 50's. While Pavithram was an emotional journey of its lead actors, Badhaai Ho was fun and packaged in a commercial format.
The latest update is that the producers of Pavithram are planning to remake the film in Tamil and Telugu. They are in talks with Sivakarthikeyan or Dulquer to play Mohanlal’s role in the Tamil version.
Sivakarthikeyan hasn’t done any remakes in his career so we have to wait and see whether he gives his nod for the project.
