Seems like, Rohit Shetty is in full swing to finalise the cast of Angoor Remake. After Simmba and Sooryavanshi, Rohit Shetty is teaming up with Ranveer Singh for the third time. If latest reports are anything to go by then the mass actor-director duo has collaborated on the official adaptation of 1982’s cult classic film Angoor. The film originally starred Sanjeev Kumar and Deven Verma. It was helmed by the legendary Gulzar. While the duo is yet to deny or confirm the same, the latest update about Angoor Remake is already doing the rounds on social media.
Looks like, Rohit Shetty has finalised its leading lady and it’s none other than Jacqueline Fernandez. According to a report in Filmfare, Rohit Shetty is keen on roping in Jackie opposite Ranveer Singh. Ranveer Singh is rumoured to play a double role in the remake. The portal also reports that Rohit worked on the script to give it a modern touch. Before Ranveer, Shetty wanted to go with Shah Rukh Khan in lead in 2015, but somehow things didn’t materialize.
Spilling the beans on the details of the Angoor remake, a source revealed to 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 same source went on to reveal that it will be a double role for Singh. “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.” 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,” added the source.
