Every Bollywood buff will agree that Chupke Chupke is one of the best Hindi comedy films.
The Hrishikesh Mukherjee movie starring Dharmendra, Amitabh Bachchan, Sharmilla Tagore and Jaya Bachchan was a huge hit back then and looks like Bollywood is all ready to remake it.
Rajkummar Rao will be seen in the remake of this cult classic. According to a source in Mumbai Mirror, the actor will step into Dharmendra’s shoes.
The actor will play the loverboy who is ready to go to any limits. For his love and to impress her family. The source tells the daily,
“The script is undergoing some rewrites as the makers are determined to do justice to the original. They are also in talks with several actors for the role of Sukumar, professor of English masquerading as Parimal and trying to teach botany, enacted by Amitabh Bachchan in the original. The cast should be locked by December.”
The film will go on the floors by March 2021.
