Actress Deepti Naval,whose 1981 film Chashme Buddoor is being remade,says remakes are an easy “shortcut”.
“To make remakes has become a smarter way. It has become a shortcut way instead of finding newer ideas,working hard. This thing becomes easy and is a shortcut,” Naval told reporters here,at a promotional event for the digitally restored original Chashme Buddoor.
David Dhawan is remaking the film. The original was directed by Sai Paranjpye.
“I haven’t seen David Dhawan’s film yet. I feel to remake a successful film is an easy job. People do like… get attracted to successful films. Remakes have always been getting made… I don’t know what kind of film he (David Dhawan) has made and what it will turn out,” Naval said.
The original 1981 Chashme Buddoor is getting restored and will re-release on April 5,the same date on which Dhawan’s film will release.
“I feel the old Chashme Buddoor did not go anywhere. It was played on TV several times. The film never died out. I did not feel the film went anywhere,” Naval said.
“I am quite excited to watch the restored version. I am looking forward to it. This thing has brought all of us together. Lot of old memories were recollected…revisited.”
