One of the funniest movies of all times, ‘Angoor’, will soon have a remake. The film that was originally made in 1982 by Gulzar is stated to be an iconic rib tickling comedy. And now it will have a remake with Shah Rukh Khan essaying the role originally played by Sanjeev Kumar and Kareena Kapoor filling in at Moushumi Chatterjee’s place. To be directed by Rohit Shetty, the film is set to go on floors by the end of this year.
As for Angoor, the film had Sanjeev Kumar playing a detective novel aficionado and Deven Verma, who pretends to be a bhaang lover. Both characters have their twin counterparts and all hell breaks loose when they finally encounter each other.
What precedes this encounter is a series of goofball moments. And adding to ruckus is Moushumi Chatterjee, whose intemperate bawling tendencies just add to the confusion.
Shetty after his ‘Golmaal’ series is now working on script for Angoor with scriptwriter Sajid-Farhad. The original was based on Shakespeare’s play ‘A Comedy of Errors’.
