Bollywood actor Rajkummar Rao has been roped in for the remake of Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s cult classic Chupke Chupke. The original film starred Dharmendra, Sharmila Tagore, Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan in the lead roles. The remake is a production by Bhushan Kumar and Luv Ranjan. The producers have reportedly bagged the rights to the original title.
Talking about taking up the film, Rajkummar had said in April, “It’s a big responsibility to step into his Dharmendra’s shoes. The scripting is underway now. We know that we can’t match Hrishida’s standard, but we will try to put our best foot forward.”
Dharmendra played the role of botany professor Parimal Tripathi. Who takes upon the person of Pyaare, a crazy driver who is obsessed with the purity of language. The 1975 film revolved around Parimal who wants to fool his wife’s brother-in-law because she is too impressed with him. And claims he knows everything. Parimal wants to break the aura around the brother-in-law and prove that even he can be fooled.
