Paresh Rawal to step into the shoes of Om Prakash in Chupke Chupke's remake!

Senior actor Paresh Rawal, who was recently seen attempting to reprise Kader Khan’s role of Narayandas in Himmatwala remake, is likely to portray the role played by legendry actor Om Prakash in 1975’s hit comedy Chupke Chupke.

Yes, if believe the buzz, the remake of hit comedy that had Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra in lead, will be restored by director Umesh Shukla, OMG: Oh My God fame. The original comedy was directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee and is among one of the best comedy films Indian cinema have in its 100 years of existence. The light-hearted comedy also see some stupendous performances by its cast , also starring Jaya Bachchan, Sharmila Tagore, Asrani and of course, Om Prakash who played Raghavendra aka Sharmila’s jijaji.

A couple of months ago, it was also reported that producer Vishwaas Paandya of White Stripes Entertainment has bought the official remake rights of this comic caper and now report says, the makers are currently busy in casting actors and has signed Paresh Rawal to reprise the thespian Om Prakash’s role. 

Vishwaas Paandya informs that the new version is an adaptation and not a remake. “Sajid-Farhad have written the script and they have completely adapted it into a new screenplay; like how Bol Bachchan (2012) was an adapted version of Gol Maal (1979). My film won’t be similar to Chupke Chupke in terms of each frame,” said Paandya.

Now we really wonder if the makers have approached Abhishek Bachchan to play Sukumar Sinha and Bobby Deol to essay Parimal Tripathi, characters played by their fathers in the original?

Let’s see what has more in store.
