The two actors have reportedly been approached to star as the leading actors in the remake of Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit‘s iconic film ‘Tezaab’. Last year, ETimes got you the exclusive scoop that producer Murad Khetani, has bought the rights to the film and was keen to start the pre-production process.
Now, BollywoodHungama states that the makers have narrowed in on casting Ranveer and Janhvi. They were also keen on getting Kartik Aaryan and Shraddha Kapoor on board for the film, however, they have dropped the idea.
Speaking about buying the remake rights of Tezaab, Khetani said, “It is an iconic film and we will adapt the story to modern times when we make it.” While Khetani is confident about his vision to remake the film, Anil-Madhuri’s director N Chandra had contrasting views when ETimes spoke to him a few days ago.
Although there is no confirmation about the same, the film would mark Ranveer’s first on-screen collaboration with Janhvi.
Speaking about buying the remake rights of Tezaab, Khetani told ETimes, “It is an iconic film and we will adapt the story to modern times when we make it.”
Meanwhile, director N Chandra who helmed the original film, told ETImes, “Tezaab is an iconic film and I don’t think it should be remade. Whether it’s me or someone else, aisi filmon ko chhedna nahi chahiye (one should not tamper with such films).”
Tezaab released in 1988 and also featured Chunky Pandey and Anupam Kher in prominent roles.
