‘Andaz Apna Apna 2,’ the film inspired by the 1994 Salman-Aamir starrer comedy of the same name, would go on the floors very soon. “It is to be noted that the rights of the film remain with Vinay Pictures and have not been sold to Phantom Films,” Priti Sinha, Director, Reel Life Entertainment (I) Pvt Ltd said.
Vinay Pictures produced the original film in the early 90s with Aamir Khan and Salman Khan in the lead. “Vinay Sinha has not sold the rights to Phantom Films or anybody else as reported by a section of media. Also, the film is not a remake of the original ‘Andaz Apna Apna’,” Priti, daughter of Vinay Sinha, told PTI.
The original film, a comic caper directed by Rajkumar Santoshi, featured an ensemble cast of Aamir, Salman, Karisma Kapoor, Raveena Tandon, Paresh Rawal, Shakti Kapoor, Shehzad Khan, Viju Khote and Javed Khan, with cameo appearances by Govinda and Juhi Chawla.
Mehmood, Jagdeep and Deven Verma also appeared in pivotal roles.
Discussions of its remake are in full-swing, whether the film is going to be a remake with an entirely new star-cast, or indeed a sequel of the old one, we’re yet to find out. Although Aamir was overly excited with the news, no confirmation on the star cast has been made as yet.
But can you imagine the timeless comedy being remade without the epic characters that made it a massive hit in the first place? Right from the Amar-Prem jodi to Robert-Bhalla’s chemistry, the movie evoked all forms of emotion within us with its perfect timing of comedy.
The many epic dialogues of the film, right from, “Yeh Teja Teja kya hai, yeh Teja Teja” to “Teja main hoon, mark idhar hai”, the film’s comic sense left us in splits. It’s no that wonder that three generations have enjoyed the film beyond words can ever express.
In this walk down the memory lane, it’s the Robert-Bhalla chemistry that had us missing the film all over again. While Robert was the perfect ‘Chela’ who looked upto his boss for everything, Bhalla was the boss who couldn’t get a single work done without a help of Robert. Such a hit was the jodi that to this day, we can remember the iconic dialogues shared between the duo.
So on the occasion of the film being remade yet again, let’s have a quick look at what the entire star cast of the epic film Andaaz Apna Apna is upto these days, especially our Robert-Bhalla jodi!
