After Simmba raved wide reviews and was loved by one and all, fans were elated to see Ranveer Singh and Rohit Shetty teaming up once again for Sooryavanshi. Owing to the lockdown, the release of Sooryavanshi, co-starring Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn, was pushed. This morning, we told you that the much-anticipated film will now release in theatres, next year. While we waited for it to arrive in theatres, we got an exciting piece of news for all Ranveer and Rohit fans. The duo is set to team up for the third time. Yes, that’s right!
If latest reports are anything to go by then Rohit Shetty will soon give huge responsibility on Ranveer Singh’s shoulders as they are again collaborating on the official adaptation of 1982’s cult classic film Angoor. The film, which originally starred Sanjeev Kumar and Deven Verma, was helmed by legendary Gulzar. According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, Ranveer Singh will step into the shoes of Sanjeev Kumar to portray the character. The report further states that the filmmaker was planning to revisit Angoor in 2015 with Shah Rukh Khan in lead, but things didn’t materialize.
A source close to the development revealed to the Bollywood Hungama, “Rohit Shetty has been trying to make Angoor remake for a while now and it is finally happening now with Ranveer Singh stepping into Sanjeev Kumar’s shoes. Rohit had planned to revisit Angoor in 2015 with Shah Rukh Khan in lead, however, things didn’t materialize and the two collaborated on Dilwale. After that, he got busy with Golmaal Again, Simmba and Sooryavanshi. He has now got the much-needed break in the Covid pandemic, and he utilised the time to fine-tune and rework on the script of Angoor adaptation.”
The source further added, “Bol Bachchan was essentially inspired by Golmaal, rather a commercial take on Golmaal. The same way, even Angoor is more of an adaptation in the present time, and Rohit is just retaining the basic premise of how two identical twins lead to confusion. It is currently being scripted and the final draft is expected to be locked soon, following which they will move on to the other aspects of pre-production, including signing other actors of the ensemble." "It will be a double role for Ranveer, and it will be a first in this space for Ranveer. They are planning it as the biggest Bollywood comedy till date,” concluded the source.
