While the tinsel town remains abuzz with the rumours of actors Ranveer Singh and Varun Dhawan starring in the 1994 comedy cult, Andaz Apna Apna, Aamir Khan, who starred in it with Salman Khan, shared his opinion on the fresh lead pair entering the Khans shoes. While the original flick was directed by Rajkumar Santoshi and will this year complete 25 years, the upcoming remake is said to be bankrolled by film producers Vinay Sinha and Priti Sinha.
While the two producers are reportedly convinced not to mess with the initial comedy flick instead, Aamir, while in an interview with Hindustan Times, said, “I don’t know if it’s [the news about Ranveer and Varun being a part of it] true but if you ask me, they should definitely do it (smiles).” He added, “Andaz Apna Apna is a film that people have loved immensely [in the past], so I am sure they would love to see it. I don’t know what exactly is being planned — a remake, part two or an offshoot. But whatever it is, I’d personally like to see a fresh take [on it]. As an audience, I would love to see what Ranveer, Varun or any of the young actors would do with the characters.”
The 1994 movie, which continues to tickle you every single time that you watch it, was directed by Raj Kumar Santoshi, produced by Vinay Sinha and written by Piyush Changde. Aamir Khan as Amar and Salman Khan as Prem, enthralled the audience with their character portrayal. If reports are to be believed, a source told Pinkvilla, “The producers Vinay and Priti Sinha are planning to do Andaz Apna Apna it won’t be a sequel or remake. Nor will Raj Kumar Santoshi direct it. While they have not decided yet what exactly it will be, they are sure it won’t be a remake or sequel but something as exciting. Raj Kumar Santoshi’s Andaz Apna Apna, starring Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Raveena Tandon and Karisma Kapoor, was a cult movie and one cannot mess with the original. One should not touch such a great film and that too 25 years later and destroy it by a remake or sequel. The director is yet to be finalised.”
The original movie revolved around daydreamers Amar and Prem, united in their goal to marry the rich heiress Raveena Bajaj (played by actress Raveena Tandon), daughter of Ram Gopal Bajaj (played by actor Paresh Rawal) and their hilarious escapades on realising that they both were chasing the same girl after frequently bumping into each other.
