Suniel Shetty will always be remembered for his role as the heartbroken lover in 2000’s ‘Dhadkan’. There was recent news that the film could be remade and Shetty has said he’s happy for that to happen.
Talking to Hindustan Times, the actor said, “I would love to see Dhadkan being remade with the actors from the younger lot. It was a great story and is a very special film and since love is an emotion that works universally, it will work even today. But of course, it has to be done with young actors as no one wants to see us oldies romancing anymore (laughs).”
He goes on to say, “I won’t take takes of the actors who can be a part of the remake because everyone is so good but it will be impossible to find someone as passionate as the director, Dharmesh Darshan. The film wouldn’t have been what it was, if it weren’t for him. His dedication to his craft is unfathomable”.
Shetty’s daughter Athiya is now a part of the industry and he admits that joint projects have come their way. “I have been offered films with Athiya but none of them have struck a chord. If something great comes our way, we would definitely be excited about working together. But after so many years, I have realised that less is more for me. I want to do less work in films that will create more impact”, he comments.
