Canadian actor Michael Cera andAmerican singer-songwriter and occasional actress Taylor Swift are likely to play the main leads in the English remake ofsuperhit Hindi film Bunty Aur Babli.
The remake is being made by Uday Chopra, who has launched 'YRF Entertainment' in the US to produce English films. "I am also remaking 'Bunty Aur Babli' in English. It'sin the scripting stage and the casting is not done. I am looking at Michael Cera and Tailor Swift. I haven't approachedthem as yet, but I want to make it a little more quirky and comic than the Indian one," Uday told reporters here lastevening."I have certain ideas for other films. As of now, Ifeel that the only film which went best with the sensibilities of the west was Bunty Aur Babli," he said.
Produced by Aditya Chopra and Yash Chopra, Bunty Aur Babli featured Abhishek Bachchan and Rani Mukherjee in the lead. The 2005 superhit film is about two lovable crooks, whoventure into many adventures like the fake selling of the TajMahal.
Uday clarifies that the production house will go forinternational cast and crew for the films that they make their.
"The idea is not to take Indian actors there. The ideais to think of ourselves as an American company. Writers, directors everyone will be from there. I don't want them tofeel that I am taking India to Hollywood. If a story requires an Indian character or if A R Rahman agrees to do my music, Iwill like it," he said.
