The latest bollywood news is that Karan had thought of remaking a Marathi hit film named ‘Jhimma’ starring Neena Gupta, Vidya Balan, Madhuri Dixit. Interestingly, he produced Dhadak, marking Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter’s debut, which was the 2016 Marathi blockbuster Sairat’s official remake, featuring Akash Thosar and Rinku Rajguru.
It hit the big screen on November 19, 2021, showcasing a tale of a group of ladies of different age groups going on an all-women packaged tour to London from India. It featured Suchitra Bandekar, Nirmiti Sawant, Sonalee Kulkarni, Kshitee Jog, Suhas Joshi, Sayali Sanjeev and Mrinmayee Godbole.
“Karan Johar had been in talks to remake Jhimma (2021). He loved the film’s concept, funny and emotional moments and its characters. The talks began last year and the recent developments are not known. Nevertheless, if all goes well and if he gets the right actors, the Dharma Productions’ head honcho would be going ahead with Jhimma’s remake,” Bollywood Hungama quoted its source as saying.
“Jhimma comprises an all-female cast. On Karan Johar’s wish list are Madhuri Dixit, Vidya Balan and Neena Gupta. He feels that these three actors will do complete justice. Also, bringing the powerhouse artists together will add to the film’s hype,” its source added.
