Filmmaker Umesh Shukla has roped in actor Paresh Rawal to step into late actor Om Prakash’s shoes for the new version of the cult classic — Chupke Chupke.
“So far, we have only finalised Paresh Rawal, who will play Om Prakash’s role,” says Shukla, who had directed Oh My God with Paresh in the lead role. “Needless to say, Pareshji is a wonderful actor and I share a good bonding with him. It will be fun to work with him again,” he adds.
The 1975 Hrishikesh Mukherjee-directed light-hearted drama saw some stellar performances by the likes of Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra, Sharmila Tagore, Jaya Bhaduri, Om Prakash and Asrani.
“We have made many changes in the script. It’s not a remake, it is an adaptation of Chupke Chupke,” says Shukla. The rest of the cast is yet to be decided. “Writer Sajid and Farhad have written the script and the film is in its final draft stage. It’s a fun-filled film. Once we finish the script, we will finalise the other actors as well,” informs Shukla.
