If there is anyone who can be dubbed as the king of good slapstick comedy, it is Mubarakan director Anees Bazmee. Famous for his films focusing on humour and having a great recall value due to the nature of its comedy, the director has made himself a place in every family’s favourite film watchlist. After his film Mubarakan starring Arjun Kapoor – Anil Kapoor in the lead roles won the hearts of his fans yet again, Bazmee has now turned his head towards another project. And this one is going to amp up the excitement level of his fans tenfold.
Ajay Devgn – Kajol starrer Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha (1998) was an iconic film when it released, and Anees Bazmee thinks it a great idea to bring the story back to the big screen, as per a report in Deccan Chronicle. “People are asking me to remake this film, and I am shocked at how even after so many years, people want to see the same story again on celluloid,” Anees says. “I’m proud that it was my second film which was such a huge hit. I’d love to take it ahead. People want me to keep the same storyline, and I am also keen to do that. I will direct the remake, but I am looking for the right script,” he adds. ALSO READ: LEAKED!

However, while this project is on the cards, there is another project in line, and it will see Arjun Kapoor and Anil Kapoor reprise the roles they did this year. “I will be working with Anil and Arjun once again. I will be making Mubarakaan 2, since the film got so much appreciation. I want the two together since the film will be incomplete without the uncle and nephew duo,” said Bazmee.
Talking about his philosophy of making clean films, the director added, “I like to make clean comedies, which the audience can watch with the family. All my films have to have a recall value and I am glad my films like Welcome and No Entry are films that people like to watch on TV over and over again.” Aren’t you excited for a remake of the 1998 classic?
