While it was previously revealed that Arjun Kapoor will work with Mudassar Aziz on the upcoming comedy Meri Patni Ka Remake, rumours have now surfaced revealing the identities of leading actresses in discussions to star in the film. The comedy caper will have two ladies, with the directors hoping to cast Rakul Preet Singh and Bhumi Pednekar.
“Even the title suggests that the script revolves around not one but two female protagonists. After contemplating on various names, the team has initiated conversations with Rakul Preet Singh and Bhumi Pednekar to step in to play two of the most important characters of the film. The humour of the Meri Patni Ka Remake is very much like Govinda films from the 90s,” revealed a source close to the development to Pinkvilla.
In a fortnight, the paperwork and other formalities should be completed. The discussions are now moving in the correct manner. Meri Patni Ka Remake is set to hit the screens in June/July of this year, with a start-to-finish timeline. For the time being, the plot has been kept under wraps. A large ensemble is likely to join the production in addition to the three leads, raising the humorous quotient.
The remake of Meri Patni Ka is now under pre-production. Bhumi will be working with Mudassar for the second time after Pati Patni Aur Woh, while Rakul will be working with him for the first time.
