Ever since producer Karan Johar announced that he is remaking Subhash Ghai’s 1989 superhit film “Ram Lakhan” that starred Anil Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, Madhuri Dixit and Dimple Kapadia, there has been lot of excitement over the film’s casting. Many actor’s name also did the round in the middle time but no one has been finalized for the remake, to be directed by Rohit Shetty.
However when Jackie and Anil who played Ram and Lakhan respectively in the original, asked about who would be their choice to reprise their characters in the remake, they mentioned Ranveer Singh and Sidharth Malhotra’s name.
Anil who was recently seen in Zoya Akhtar’s “Dil Dhadakne Do”, recently said in an interview, “I feel who is best for the film commercially, they should cast him. But If I was a producer, I would cast Ranveer as Lakhan. Ram would be Sidharth Malhotra because of the intensity.”
Jackie who will be next seen in Karan Malhotra’s Brothers starring Akshay Kumar and Sidharth Malhotra, also want to cast Ranveer and Sid in the remake of his iconic movie. Talking about his choice for Ram and Lakhan, he said, “I think Sidharth (Malhotra) would be a very good choice. I have worked with him in Brothers and I’ve seen that he has the same level of sincerity that I had. Ram is someone who is very respectful to his mother, very loving to his brother and yet, is very strict as a police officer. He has all these qualities and I am sure will do a good job.”
Well, the makers of Ram Lakhan remake haven’t finalized anything yet and they are busy in their current respective projects. The film is expected to roll early next year.
