With the latest Bollywood trend of remaking old classics, Venus Entertainment and Gandhi Media have joined hands to remake Guru Dutt's unforgettable classic Chaudhvin Ka Chand.

Paying a tribute to his father, Arun Dutt will head the advisory panel for this project, reports Bollywood Trade.

A few months ago, there was a buzz that the eminent director Rituparno Ghosh's forthcoming project will be a remake of the 1960s classic Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam based on Bimal Mitra's classic.

One of the greatest filmmakers of his time, Guru Dutt crafted masterpieces like Pyaasa, Kaagaz Ke Phool and Chaudhvin Ka Chand. Despite being a commercial director his work reflected the same intelligentsia of parallel filmmakers like Satyajit Ray.
