Now 'Dil Chahta Hai' remake?
The guru is remaking Sholay. The chela has followed suit. Ramgopal Varma’s erstwhile assistant Rohit Jugraj [director of JAMES] is remaking the talked-about Farhan Akhtar film Dil Chahta Hai. At least that’s the speculation in the industry.
“Agreed, my next film is about female bonding and the plot revolves around three girls, but it’s not a remake of Dil Chahta Hai. Every two-hero film shouldn’t be mistaken as Sholay or a two-guy-one-girl love story can’t be a SAAGAR. It can be a Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam too,” Rohit enlightens.
So he’s not remaking Dil Chahta Hai? “Nahin, bilkul nahin! Dil Chahta Hai is a masterpiece, why should I tamper with it? My film looks at the relationship between three girls [Jhanvi, Ginny and Mansi], their bonding, the catfights, the sensitive moments, the ups and downs in a relationship… I am trying to understand women through my film,” he smiles.
Rohit hasn’t signed any actor yet, but the rumor mills are agog with the speculation that he has approached Sushmita Sen, Lara Dutta and Priyanka Chopra for the roles in question. True? “I am talking to five actors currently, of which three will be finalized in due course. Yes, we did approach Lara for one of the roles, but her dates posed a problem. I wouldn’t like to reveal the names of the other actors right now since nothing is on paper yet,” he clarifies.
Roopesh Gohil, a Mumbai-based entrepreneur, will produce the film, which is expected to roll in February 2007 at an overseas destination.
