Kannywood’s gentle giant producer, Abubakar Bashir Maishadda is on set again and what he is doing this time will interest you.

We know of musicians doing a remix of their old tracks but not movie producers.

He is set to do a remake of the movie Mujadala which was originally released in 2010.

The movie starred Ali Nuhu, Shuaibu Kumurchi and Sani Mai Iska.

By all standards, you could call it a Kannywood blockbuster at that time, breaking several industry records.

So, why remake a successful movie?

In a chat with Bounce News, Maishadda explained that he felt the need to modernize the movie with new approaches considering how well Kannywood had grown in the past 10 years.

“Some of the new things we should expect in the new Mujadala are the change in characters, actors and buildings.

“The director is Ali Nuhu and the things we did 10 years ago, if we change it to the way we do it today, it will be a new thing.

“Probably, the movie should be released in January next year (2019) as we have a lot of movies on ground to release.

“One of them will be released in the cinema this coming Eid. It is titled Mariya,” he said.
