BizAsiaLive.com reported a few days ago that Ekta Kapoor will soon be remaking the Bollywood blockbuster ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’ into a television series.
Further details on the huge project have come to light. According to Mirror, the series will be known as ‘Dil Hi To Hai’ and is expected to star Bijoy Anand as the head of the house, previously played by Amitabh Bachchan.
A source said, “Bijoy Anand, who played Kajol’s wayward fiancé in the 1998 romcom Pyaar Toh Hona Hi Tha, has been cast to play Amitabh Bachchan’s patriarch, Yashvardhan Raichand, while Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi actress Erica Fernandes is in talks to play either Kajol’s talkative Anjali or her younger sister, Pooja (popularised by Kareena as ‘Poo’). The part will be finalised after a look test.”
Rajat Tokas and Varun Sood are favourites to bag the male leads, originally played by Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan.
The show will air on Sony Entertainment Television in the next couple of months.
