It seems Rohit Shetty has finally locked the cast of Ram Lakhan remake.
The director has joined hands with Karan Johar for the remake of Subhash Ghai’s 1989 hit film in association with Mukta Arts. And, buzz had it that Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra and Fawad Khan have been roped in to play the lead characters.
Apparently, Sidharth will step into the shoes of Jackie Shroff to play Ram and Fawad will essay the character of Lakhan in the remake. And, Alia Bhatt will be seen in the role of Radha, played by Madhuri Dixit in the original film.
Last year, Dharma productions announced the news of the official remake. A message on Dharma Productions’ Twitter handle on Friday read, “Here’s the big announcement! Rohit Shetty & Karan Johar, in association with Mukta Arts, presents Ram Lakhan in 2016.”
The original Ram Lakhan featured actors including Anil Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, Madhuri Dixit, Dimple Kapadia and Rakhee.
There is also buzz about the Alia, Sidharth and Fawad starring in Shakun Batra’s next. If things go well, this would be Fawad’s second film after signing for a cameo in Karan Johar’s Aye Dil Hai Mushkil.
It would be also interesting to see alleged real-life couple Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra to share the screen space in the remake. However, the two will not be romantically paired together in the film.
