Ash-Abhi to recreate Amitabh-Jayaâ€™s Abhimaan
Aishwarya and Abhishek Bachchan have been signed to re-create the magic of Amitabh and Jaya’s yesteryears blockbuster Abhimaan. The film by Hrishikesh Mukherjee is a golden piece and director Rajeev Menon is keen to remake the classic. Ash-Abhi together sizzled in Guru and Rajeev Menon, director of Sapnay (Minsaara Kanavu) and Kandukondain Kandukondain has full confidence on this married couple.
The film has been tentatively titled Dhun and like the earlier one it will also be based on music. It was Rajeev’s long time dream to remake the classic blockbuster Abhimaan and finds Ash-Abhi the perfect pair to re-create the magic of Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan on silver screen. The husband-wife duo will start shooting for Menon’s film once they are done with Mani Ratnam's Ravana.
Abhimaan still reminds people about its mind-blowing music and the rave performance of Amitabh and Jaya. The film has mesmerized the audience of 80’s and Amitabh and Jaya’s combination was much appreciated. Time will tell whether Ash and Abhi would be able to fade away the memories of Jaya and Amitabh and set a new record.
