The celebration of the Indian Film Industry reaching 100 years, is sparking up a few older inspirations. News has it, that father and son duo Rishi and Ranbir Kapoor will be seen in the same roles as Ranbir’s great-grandfather and grand-father’s Prithivraj and Raj Kapoor’s in a re-make of the 1951 classic ‘Awaara’.
Kapoor (Rishi) confirmed to reporters about going ahead with the project in order to re-launch the family production banner RK Films. “‘Besharam’��was the testing ground for the two of us together on the screen. We would now like to do something deeper. A remake of my father’s ‘Awaara’��is on our minds. And in all likelihood, we will be doing it for our banner RK Films,” NDTV��reported the actor stating.
To be directed by Abhinav Kashyap, ‘Besharam’ will see both Rishi and Ranbir Kapoor share the screen along with wife/mother Neetu Singh. Talking about working with his family, and what his role is in the film, Kapoor goes onto say, “Both Neetu and I enjoyed working with Ranbir thoroughly. I had fun working with my wife and son. But I still feel there should be more of Neetu and I in ‘Besharam’. My only grouse in this otherwise-enjoyable experience was the length of our roles and Ranbir knows it. So they’re trying to expand our roles. Neetu and I play cops. Our characters are seen off and on.”
