Tell Me O Kkhuda might have had a very luke warm response at the box-office but Hema Malini is not deterred. She plans to remake Razia Sultan (1983) with her daughter in the lead. The story is about two men in love with her. One was a slave who trained her for action, sword fighting, horse riding and how to tackle things on the battlefield. And the other man was a prince.
The story talks about how she handled both and faced the war. The ex-actor says the movie she plans to remake will have lots of action, horse riding and beautiful war scenes. The actor-director adds, "When Jodhaa Akbar was being made, I was sceptical about it, but see how beautifully it turned out. It goes to show people love seeing grand historical stories, if told well."
However Hema refuses to get into the director's chair with this one. She says, "It will be an expensive project. I will look for a good financer to co-produce with me, and will get another director."
