Back in 1995, director Aditya Chopra’s

Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge

turned out to be one of the greatest hits Bollywood had seen.

Now, an industry source claims that a remake is on the cards, and that Chopra will, again, helm the project.

"The working title is Dulhaniya Chali Dilwale Ke Sath, and Adi Chopra will be directing it. The name is subject to change, depending on the lyrics of the title song," the source says.

The story of the film will apparently be adapted to the present social scenario.

The source further claims that "

Shah Rukh Khan

and Kajol (who starred in the original) will be seen in cameo roles, but won’t share screen space".

The source also adds that TV actor Farhan Khan (from the show Chhanchhan) will play the male lead, supposedly reprising Shah Rukh’s role from the original. Newbie actor Mahika Sharma is being considered for


’s part.

Boman Irani (in Anupam Kher’s role) and Paresh Rawal (in Amrish Puri’s role) will also be part of the film.

The source further adds, "The makers are planning to shoot a song in Malaysia."

However, when contacted, Rafique Gangjee, the spokesperson of Chopra’s production house, denied the news.
