If things go as planned, we might see film legend Dilip Kumar return to acting in a movie to be produced by his wife, former actress Saira Banu .

He was the original Devdas, with brooding eyes and a perpetual grouse with the world, but today's generation of actors have hardly seen him at work. And now, wife Saira Banu hopes to bring back husband Dilip Kumar to acting under her production banner.




"Yes I hope to bring back Dilip sahib once I prove my capability as a producer. There were one or two scripts that we had revived including 'Satya Master'. If he agrees, I would like to produce that film," Saira Banu told reporters in Mumbai in a rare press conference last night.

"Why not, it would be a good thing," Dilip Kumar said when informed of his wife's plans.

The thespian's last film was 'Qila' in 1998.

Saira also came out strongly against the recent trend of remakes of old films, saying she had even tried to convince filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali not to remake Devdaas .

"I am totally against remakes of old films. How can you hope to replace the original actor, his performance in a remake? I have seen the new 'Devdas' and although it has great production value and grandeur, it does not have the soul that the original had," the yesteryear actress said.

Speaking about her directorial ambitions, she said: "I would love to direct, ideally a light, romantic ambition, but directing and even acting is a full time job. You have to be there all times. My priorities have changed. I prefer to look after my home and family. In production, I can take my own time."

The duo have also followed the trend of Bollywood stars foraying into the burgeoning Bhojpuri film industry, by coming out with their maiden Bhojpuri production, which is set to hit theatres next month.

"When people ask me why Bhojpuri, I ask them why not. It is a beautiful language, has a very earthy feel to it and I have been very influenced by it ever since I saw 'Ganga Jamuna'. I would like to produce even more Bhojpuri films," she added.

Kumar also seconded his wife's opinion and said, "Bhojpuri films are coming up a lot and many of the stars are making a lot of money."

Their debut production venture 'Ab To Ban Ja Sajanva Hamaar', featuring Bhojpuri stars Nagma and Ravi Kishen, will be released on October 27.
