Mumbai: Actor Anil Kapoor says remaking ‘Ram Lakhan’ is more of a business proposition than a creative one.
Subhash Ghai and starred Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, Madhuri Dixit, Dimple Kapadia and Raakhee directed ‘Ram Lakhan’, released in 1989.
“I think remaking ‘Ram Lakhan’ is more of business proposition than creative. But I think Rohit Shetty and Karan Johar will do their best,” Kapoor told PTI in an interview.
Shetty and Johar have announced that they would be making a remake of the hit film. Anil did not name any actors who would be apt to be part of the film’s remake version yet.
When asked if his actor nephew Arjun would be fit for his role, he said, “I don’t know. I think it depends on filmmakers. There are certain filmmakers who are casting actors more for the excitement of first look than getting the perfect cast for a bigger picture.”
Meanwhile, the 58-year-old actor is happy with the response received by his latest film ‘Dil Dhadakane Do’.
“I am glad that the film did so well. It’s teamwork and everyone has done a good job. I am thankful to Zoya for giving me an opportunity to be part of this big project,” he said.
“I am open to playing father… grandfather roles,” he added.
‘Dil Dhadakane Do’, directed by Zoya Akhtar had Anil Kapoor, Shefali Shah, Ranveer Singh, Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar and Anushka Sharma in lead roles.
