Remember how Karan Johar and Rohit Shetty proudly presented the first look of the Ram Lakhan remake a few years ago? However, Rohit said something in an interview that wasn’t only disappointing for the fans of the original film that were waiting for the remake but also a shocking revelation for cine-goers in general.
This is what he said, “No, the Ram Lakhan remake is not happening. Two stars don’t want to work together; they just want to promote each other’s films. This young lot, they will tweet for each other, but they will not work with each other.” Rohit added, “The last lot to work together is Ajay Devgn and Akshay Kumar or Abhishek Bachchan and Hrithik Roshan. But the new lot won’t work with each other; I don’t know why they are insecure of each other? So, now we have just kept it aside. I guess we will have to make it again with Anil Kapoor and Jackie Shroff.”
Well, the man who made the original Ram Lakhan, Showman Subhash Ghai , gave his take on who could reprise the role of Ram and Lakhan if the film is ever remade. “There are many brilliant actors today. Ranbir Kapoor is great. Varun Dhawan is a great actor. There are so many who are good.” Subhash Ghai said this on the occasion of the re-premiere of Ram Lakhan at New Excelsior Mukta A2. The filmmaker added, “They’re taking their time. I’m happy. I know whenever they’ll make the film, they’ll make it well. If Rohit Shetty makes ‘Ram Lakhan’ with newcomers, even then it’ll run. When I had started ‘Ram Lakhan’, both these actors, Jackie Shroff and Anil Kapoor were coming from five flops each. People had written them off. But I took them because in this film, characters are stronger than the stars.”
Hopefully, Ram Lakhan remake should surely see the lights of the day.
