The much remembered film ‘Awara’ (1951) which was produced and directed by Raj Kapoor is set for an on-screen return in colour. The film also starred Kapoor as male lead along with Nargis.
The Kapoor parivaar are keen on keeping the rights with RK Films and and re-releasing the movie in a colour version. There was initially talk of Rishi and Ranbir Kapoor being a part of a contemporary version of the movie but it seems junior Kapoor was adamant that the classic should not be tampered with.
The film will be the first release from the banner for a long 22 years.
