Imagination soars beyond the skies as entertainment portals get desperate for news. The latest brainwave comes to us in the form of a Vicky Kaushal –Manushi Chillar comedy which according to many portals is going to be based on Yash Chopra’s second directorial venture Dharamputra released in 1961.
The story published by the portal doesn't have the facts right thus making us question the story. Firstly Dharamputra was not produced by Yash Raj Productions but Yash Chopra’s brother BR Chopra, so it is not for Yash Raj to remake it.
The story mentions that the supposed remake would be inspired by the song Tu Hindu banega na Mussalman banega insaan ki aulad hai insaan banega from Dharamputra. That song is not even part of Dharamputra! It is from Dhool Ka Phool produced by BR Chopra.
Dharamputra was a very serious grim provocative film on the Hindu-Muslim riots during India’- Pakistan partition and the late Yash Chopra had once told me, “It sparked off riots in some areas, shows had to b cancelled. I decided I’d never attempt something on a Hindu-Muslim theme after that.”
So if Vicky Kaushal and Manushi Chillar's film is not based on Dharmaputra then we wonder where the story came from?
