As much as southern director Krish is excited about his upcoming film "Gabbar", the Hindi remake of Tamil blockbuster "Ramana", he admits it will be as challenging as any other film.

"I'm really excited about the project and I can't start working on it. However, I feel it will be equally challenging as any other film I have worked on. Since I'm venturing new territory (Bollywood), I can already feel the pressure," Krish told IANS.

He will direct Akshay Kumar in the film, which will be produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

"I can't add anything more at the moment. The film will go on floors soon and the hunt for the rest of the cast is on," he added.

"Ramana" was directed by A.R. Murugadoss in Tamil. It was later remade in Telugu as "Tagore" with megastar Chiranjeevi in the lead.

It was rumoured that Murugadoss was likely to direct Akshay in the Hindi remake of the film. But he wanted to first complete the Hindi remake of Tamil remake "Thuppakki".

Known for carving his identity with Telugu hit films such as "Gamyam" and "Vedam", Krish feels remakes are not easy.

"People feel remakes are easy to make, but I beg to differ. Since they come with pre-arranged expectations, it's very important to break that notion. Remakes are also highly prone to comparison with the original," he said.

Krish has also recently roped in Mahesh Babu for an untitled Telugu film, which will also feature Sonakshi Sinha.
