Mumbai: There are reports doing the rounds that Karan Johar is set to launch Sridevi's daughter Jhanvi Kapoor in the remake of the Marathi blockbuster 'Sairat'.

The success of the film has brought focus to the Marathi film industry. However, several other Marathi films have also tasted success before ‘Sairat, one of them being ‘Poster Boys’.

The film was produced by Shreyas Talpade who also had a cameo in it. The film is all set to be remade into Hindi and this time Shreyas goes one step ahead and also gets on board as the director as well as one of the protagonists. Real-life brothers Sunny and Bobby Deol complete the set of three central characters for the film.

The story of the film revolves around the three characters falling in trouble after a blunder, which leads to chaotic situations in the film.

Sony Pictures Networks Productions (formerly MSM Motion Pictures), a division of Sony Pictures Networks India Pvt. Ltd. (SPN) will be presenting the film.

Sneha Rajani, Dy President & Head, Sony Pictures Networks Productions, said, “As a studio, we believe in content- driven stories that will be loved by the audiences. Poster Boys is one such film. I am confident that Shreyas in his directorial debut will do justice to this outstanding script. The biggest highlight is the casting of this film as both, Sunny and Bobby are playing roles which is a first for them in their respective careers.”

Sunny Deol, also the producer, said, "We loved the concept of Poster Boys when Shreyas shared the script with us. I have known Shreyas for a while now and relate to his sensibilities. The way he is bringing the character and story alive is very engaging. This film is just a beginning of our association with Sony Pictures Networks Productions and I am sure that it will go a long way forward."

Shreyas Talpade, says, “I am not sure if I had thought I would ever direct and not in my wildest dreams did I think that in my directorial debut I would be directing a legend, Sunny Deol, who I grew up watching. This shift is very exciting and I am overwhelmed with the fact that Sony Pictures Networks Productions and Sunny Sounds Pvt LTD have shown this faith in me.”
