Akshay Kumar in 'Jatt & Juliet' remake?

Akshay to play lead in 'Jatt & Juliet' remake?

If things go as planned, we might see Akshay Kumar playing a rustic lout wooing a pretty fashion designer in the Hindi remake of the Punjabi blockbuster Jatt & Juliet.

The remake rights of "Jatt & Juliet", the biggest hit in Punjabi cinema of all times, has been secured by producers Himesh Reshammiya and Rakesh Upadhyay -- the team that has just released the comic romp Khiladi 786.

It, therefore, comes as no surprise to hear that Akshay Kumar is likely to play the lead in the Hindi adaptation of the film.

The all-time blockbuster of a Punjabi romance starred Diljit Dosanjh and Neeru Bajwa as a rustic Punjabi and a sophisticated fashion designer who keep bumping into one another in Canada.

The Punjabi film has been itching for a Bollywood interpretation. We now hear that following "Khiladi 786", Reshammiya and Upadhyay have joined hands to do "Jatt & Juliet" in Hindi.

The Hindi remake would be directed by Anurag Singh, who directed the Punjabi smash hit.

Upadhyay, while admitting that the "Jatt & Juliet" remake would start early next year, refrains from commenting on the cast.

"At the moment, I wouldn't like to comment on the cast. But yes, Himesh and I are going ahead with two projects. One of them is a thriller and the other is the remake of 'Jatt & Juliet'. The Punjabi film was also produced by Himesh and me. We'll do the remake on a much more lavish scale. But the basic plot of 'Jatt & Juliet' is so endearing it needs no embellishment in Hindi."

Press him about Akshay Kumar's presence in the remake, and Upadhyay laughs: "We've just delivered a film that has been immensely liked. So Himesh, Akshay and I would definitely not like to break the team. Like I said, until all the formalities are completed it would be unwise to talk about the casting."

Himesh Reshammiya and Rakesh Upadhyay intend to continue producing films together.

"After Khiladi 786, Himesh has 10 hardbound scripts ready. We're both workaholics. We'll continue to collaborate on mass-entertainment films. We want to make the kind of films that make people smile and laugh."
