Father-son duo Rishi and Ranbir to star in ‘Awara’ remake

After ‘Besharam’, the father-son duo Rishi Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor are coming together for another movie which is a remake of Prithiviraj Kapoor and father Raj Kapoor`s starrer hit movie, ‘Awara’. Rishi and Ranbir will reportedly step into the shoes of Prithiviraj Kapoor and Raj Kapoor.  With the remaking of the film, they will revive their home production RK Films.

‘Besharam’ will also star Neetu Singh alongside Rishi and Ranbir. It was Rishi who let the cat out of the bag and he said: "`Besharam` was the testing ground for the two of us together on the screen. We would now like to do something deeper. A remake of my father`s `Awara` is on our minds. And in all likelihood, we will be doing it for our banner RK Films."

Rishi won`t direct the ‘Awara’ remake. "No thanks. Direction is a thankless job. I don`t want to get into that space at all," said Rishi, who went behind the camera for "Aa Ab Laut chalen".

"I am very comfortable and happy as an actor. I just want to act. I am at peace with myself. I don`t have to think about anything except acting. I am having a ball. I`ve received loads of messages for my performance in `Aurangzeb`. I can`t be happier. The best most touching message came from Mrs Pam Chopra. I`ll treasure it forever," said the 60-year-old.

In ‘Besharam’ we will get to see enough of Rishi-Neetu so that the audience do not feel cheated with their small roles.

Said Rishi: "Both Neetu and I enjoyed working with Ranbir thoroughly. I had fun working with my wife and son. But I still feel there should be more of Neetu and I in `Besharam`. My only grouse in this otherwise-enjoyable experience was the length of our roles and Ranbir knows it. So they`re trying to expand our roles. Neetu and I play cops. Our characters are seen off and on."

"The director is trying to increase Neetu and my roles. Of course, Ranbir and I have scenes together in `Besharam`, including the climax of the plot. But they`re trying to create scenes where all three of us can be together," said Rishi.

Rishi earlier had the wrong thought that Ranbir would be uncomfortable sharing screen-space with him. "`Yeh aaj kal ke bachcha nahin baap hain`. In any case, `Besharam` is not a film that requires great histrionics from either of us. It`s light, bubbly and frothy and a little dramatic," he said.
