special 26Filmmaker Neeraj Pandey-directed "Special 26", which has garnered positive response, is likely to be remade down South.

"Yes, I have received many calls since Friday. Many people from South have approached me asking for the remake rights," Pandey, who had earlier won accolades for helming "A Wednesday", told IANS.

He was speaking on the sidelines of a "Special 26" event. Released last week, the film is doing well.

However, the decision about remake rights won't be taken by Pandey, he said and added: "I don't know what is the status about it. People on the upper level will take the decision."

His "A Wednesday" remade in Tamil as "Unnaipol Oruvan" and Telugu as "Eeenadu".

"Special 26", based on a real life incident, sees Akshay Kumar as a conman and he clarifies he was not experimenting.

"My intention was not to experiment with different films. I really liked the subject. This is one of the best films among my films. When I was just coming here to meet you all, I met Mithun Chakrobarty and he said he really liked the film and wants to remake it in Bengali."

The film also featured Anupam Kher and Manoj Bajpai, among others.
