Emraan Hashmi was recently seen in comedy thriller Ghanchakkar,but failed to impress the audience.
Last year,Pooja Bhatt had expressed her desire to remake Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahi with sister Alia and Ranbir Kapoor in the lead.
Speaking about this,an ecstatic Bhushan Kumar said: “We were confident that Aashiqui 2 will do well,so I went to Bhatt saab asking him to revive my father’s and his other hit Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin. That’s how we have joined hands in making another love story. While discussing on prospective actors and script,we thought of Emraan Hashmi. He is a very fine actor. We think Emraan will do complete justice to the role.”
“The film I directed was modelled on It Happened One Night by Frank Capra,but didn’t do justice to the hero’s character. With this remake,we seek to do justice to the character. Emraan fits this character like a glove. With this film,women who have secretly lusted for him so far will now fall in love with him,” said Mahesh Bhatt.
Vishesh Films,which recently came up with blockbuster hit Aashiqui2,has joined hands with T-Series for this love story.
The Mahesh Bhatt film was an unofficial remake of the 1934 Hollywood film It Happened One Night.
While the lead actor is finalised as Emraan Hashmi,the producers are still looking out for the female lead. (With Bollywood Hungama inputs)
