Movie Moghul Yash Chopra is planning to remake his 1970s blockbuster Kabhie Kabhie , which had mega superstar Amitabh Bachchan in the male lead role.

Yes, this seems to be the age of remakes Don , Umrao Jaan and Sahib, Biwi Aur Ghulam among others.




Chopra did the original film and he will be doing the remake as well.

The original star cast consisted of Bachchan, Shashi Kapoor , Rakhee Gulzar , Waheeda Rahman , Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh .

Chopra wants Shah Rukh Khan to play Bachchan's role and Akshay Kumar to play Shashi Kapoor's role.

SRK was extremely excited when he heard about the project. He is currently doing another Bachchan remake, of Don (1978) , but Bachchan's role in 'Kabhie Kabhie' is definitely a dream role for any actor.

Chopra has already sent Akshay feelers for this film. Akshay is currently in Cape Town and will meet and discuss the details with Chopra when he gets back.

SRK and Akshay acted in Chopra's Dil To Pagal Hai in 1997.

Chopra also wanted Rani Mukherjee to play the female lead of Rakhee's role in the film, but due to Rani's unavailability of dates, he has now approached Preity Zinta for the role.

Rest of the cast is yet to be decided.

Chopra wanted to make the remake of 'Kabhie Kabhie' with stars of today's generation for quiet some time.

However, it will definitely not be a frame-to-frame remake, the subject will be similar to the earlier one but the treatment and approach will definitely be more contemporary.
