Emraan to play Aamir's role in ‘Dil Hai Ki Maanta Nahi’ remake
Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt is planning a remake of 1990 blockbuster ‘Dil Hai Ki Maanta Nahi’ and this time it's not with Aamir Khan but with his all time favorite Emraan Hashmi. Instead of casting the original actor of the movie Aamir Khan, Mahesh Bhatt decided to remake the film with Emraan.
Released in 1991, ‘Dil Hai Ki Maanta Nahi’ starred Aamir Khan and Pooja Bhaat in the lead. The leading actress of the film is not yet decided but it is learnt that the storyline will be the same as the original.
"The film I directed was modeled 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 played originally by Clark
Gable, that of an unapologetic rake," said Bhatt.
"Emraan fits this character like a glove. With this film, women will now fall in love with him," he added.
Last year, Pooja Bhatt expressed her desire to remake ‘Dil Hai Ki Maanta Nahi’ with sister Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor but things did not work out.
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."
Emraan Hashmi’s latest release ‘Ghanchakkar’ failed to
impress his audience.
