Bhatia claims that the 83-year-old filmmaker has given his blessings for the remake. "I spoke to him and he is very happy. He has given his best wishes for the remake. This is one of his best films and we're proud to remake it. It will be a full-fledged remake," he said.
The original movie, a romantic comedy, starred Amol Palekar and Tina Munim. The remake will have a fresh cast. "The remake will have fresh faces and the film will go on floors by November 2013," Bhatia said.
