Sonam Kapoor to work on 'Khubsoorat' remake

After ‘Raanjhanaa’ (2013), Sonam Kapoor will move her attention to her next – the remake of the 1980 Hrishikesh Mukerjee-directed family drama ‘Khubsoorat’.

The story of the original will be overhauled completely, while retaining the spirit of the characters. The film is about a young fun loving girl who falls in love with a doctor, played by Rakesh Roshan. How she wins the hearts of everyone in her beau`s family that revolves around his mother`s strict regimen is the story all about.

Kapoor confirmed that she has allocated dates for the film to start in August, “The whole point of the film is to capture the spirit of the character. The story is completely changed. So, I want to capture that spirit. Rekha did it so beautifully… even if I can do 10 percent of that, it is great. I am scared before getting into any character. I hope to make it more current and how young girls are right now… more vibrant.”

She is convinced that girls will appreciate the new version of Khubsoorat۪ and added: “It will be very Mills and Boonish. I make movies for girls. It is a chic flick.”
