Who doesn’t want to see the firebrands of Bollywood Ranveer Singh and Varun Dhawan together in a movie? And if the movie is a comic one, the fun gets doubled up. Reports are rife that Varun and Ranveer might come together for Andaz Apna Apna remake. The producers have reportedly approached the actors for featuring in the remake of 1994 comedy film. However, another report suggests that the film is not going to be an Andaz Apna Apna remake or sequel. Instead, it’s going to have an entirely different narrative.
Varun Dhawan and Ranveer Singh will play the male leads in the film but it’s going to have a different story that the original 1994 film. They will not play Amar and Prem characters which were originally played by Aamir Khan and Salmn Khan. The original film was directed by Raj Kumar Santoshi and produced by Vinay Sinha.
A source was quoted telling Pinkvilla, “The producers Vinay and Priti Sinha are planning to do Andaz Apna Apna it won’t be a sequel or remake. Nor will Raj Kumar Santoshi direct it. While they have not decided yet what exactly it will be, they are sure it won’t be a remake or sequel but something as exciting. Raj Kumar Santoshi’s Andaz Apna Apna, starring Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Raveena Tandon and Karisma Kapoor, was a cult movie and one cannot mess with the original. One should not touch such a great film and that too 25 years later and destroy it by a remake or sequel. The director is yet to be finalised.”
Shakti Kapoor’s Crime Master Gogo character will be revived in the reboot, but the modern avatar will be played by a new-age actor.
The source added, “Ranveer and Varun, have been approached for their comic flair to play Amar and Prem – who again will be happy-go-lucky characters but not the same ones we saw in the 1994 movie. Both are good friends off screen and will be able to carry off their roles with ease. This will be set in 2019 and promises to be another laugh riot yet with underlying emotions. while the iconic character of Crime Master Gogo (played by Shakti Kapoor earlier) will also make a comeback with a contemporary actor and his character will be more stylised and modern.”
Ranveer Singh earlier expressed his will to work in Andaz Apna Apna remake in a tweet responding to a fan. However, there’s no official confirmation about the same yet.
