Varun Dhawan and Shahrukh Khan to Play Brothers
Looks like its the season of Brothers in Bollywood. Almost every other film that is set to release this year has story revolving around two brothers. Another addition to this race is Shahrukh Khan and Rohit Shetty’s unofficial remake of 1958 film Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi. Shahrukh Khan who is just on the verge of finishing shooting of his film ‘Fan’ has already signed up for his next venture with Rohit Shetty. Rohit Shetty who is known for his action comedy films has long plans of making the remake of Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi. For Shahrukh Khan’s brother role Rohit has eyes on varun Dhawan who happily agreed to be part of a Shahrukh Khan’s film.
The original film which star the real life trio of Kumar Brothers (Ashok Kumar, Kishore Kumar and Anoop Kumar) was very much liked by the fans and is often cited as one of the finest hindi comedy movies of all time. The song ‘Ek Ladki Bhigi Bhaagi si’ is popular even now. Rohit shetty’s version will not be exact copy of Chalti ka Naam Gaadi. Rohit’s plot is inspired from two films actually. The main plot is inspired from Chalti ka Naam Gaadi while it has elements inspired from Mukul Anand’s Hum too. Released in 1991 the film starred Amitabh Bachchan, Rajnikanth and Govinda in lead role as brothers.
Shahrukh Khan’s character is somewhat inspired from Ashok Kumar’ Brojmohan Sharma from Chalti ka Naam Gaadi and Amitabh Bachchan’s Tiger from Hum. As both films centered around three brothers so it is still unknown if Rohit will rope in another actor to play a third brother or will his film be just about two brothers. For the female lead, Rohit has signed up Kriti Sanon who debuted last year from film Heropanti (Opposite Tiger Shroff). Kriti will plays love interest of Varun Dhawan.
As the film is inspired from two such films where the elder brothers had no love life and were actually staying away from woman. So, Shahrukh Khan’s character might be the same where he will stay away from woman. It will be revealed at one point that he actually had a woman in her life who dumped him. She will later return to his life. For this role Rohit Shetty has eyes on Kajol (who else could match the perfect chemistry with Shahrukh). Rohit shetty will begin shooting the film in March.
We surely hope that this film (like previous films of Rohit) will have lot of action, car chasing and smashing and rolling along with a lot of fun and comedy. Rohit might add comic actors like Sanjay Mishra,Manoj Pahwa,Vrajesh Hirjee, Mukesh Tiwari and Johnny Lever.
