Last year it was reported that Rajkummar Rao will be seen playing Dharmendra’s iconic character from his 1975’s superhit Chupke Chupke.
The original film starred Dharmendra, Amitabh Bachchan, Sharmilla Tagore and Jaya Bachchan which was a huge hit back then.
Even though there is no official announcement made for the rest of the cast, it is said that Rajkummar will step into Dharmendra’s shoes.
The actor will be seen playing a heartthrob who is ready to go to any limits for his love and to impress her family. According to the latest update, the film is set to go on the floor in March 2021.
The source tells the daily, “The script is undergoing some rewrites as the makers are determined to do justice to the original. They are also in talks with several actors for the role of Sukumar, professor of English masquerading as Parimal and trying to teach botany, enacted by Amitabh Bachchan in the original. The cast should be locked by December.”
Meanwhile, Rajkummar Rao has Challaang and Ludo up for OTT release. He has wrapped up Roohi-Afza and he will soon shoot for Badhaai Do and another film where he will be seen with Kriti Sanon.
