With remakes being a huge favourite for film-goers, it seems more and more filmmakers are looking to bank on more successes. With the anticipation of Rajkummar Rao reprising the role of Dharmendra in the forthcoming ‘Chupke Chupke’ (1975) remake, it seems the casting for the film is proving to be much more challenging than the makers anticipated.

Determined to get the remake right, Mid-Day reports a source close to the production revealing, “The script is undergoing some rewrites as the makers are determined to do justice to the original. They are also in talks with several actors for the role of Sukumar, professor of English masquerading as Parimal and trying to teach botany, enacted by Amitabh Bachchan in the original. The cast should be locked by December.”

Set to go on floors on 21st March, there is no doubt that Rao will do justice to such an iconic role.
