Aishwarya RaiSunil Shetty to play a pivotal role in the remake of 'Umrao Jaan'

After Aishwarya Rai , Abhishek Bachchan and Arshad Warsi , Sunil Shetty has been signed to play a pivotal role in the remake of 'Umrao Jaan'.

Sunil has been signed to play the role of bandit Faiz Ali in the remake which will be directed by J.P. Dutta .




This will be Sunil's fourth film with Dutta after Border, Refugee and LOC and Sunil is pretty happy with the development. He says, "To work with JP Saab is almost like coming home for me. I can never say no to him. And he can never refuse me a role. I thoroughly enjoyed being part of his war trilogy Border , Refugee and LoC Kargil . And now I'm looking forward to seeing what JP does in a costume drama."

Though Sunil has worked with the junior Bachchan in 'Refugee', LOC and Dus , this will be his second film with the gorgeous Ash. No, we are not counting the ill-fated 'Hum Panchi Ek Daal Ke' where Sunil was paired with Ash for the first time, but don't you remember that Sunil had a small role in Kyon, Ho Gaya Na which also starred Amitabh Bachchan and Vivek Oberoi ?

But Sunil, whose Chocolate was released last week, still remembers 'Hum Panchi Ek Daal Ke'. He says, "It was a really beautiful film...almost like an Indian Sound Of Music. One of my favourite directors Shashilal Nair was doing it. And another huge favourite Gulzar Saab had written the lovely songs. I wish it hadn't been shelved. I'm glad I'm finally doing another film with Ash."
