Fawad Khan aka the new Lakhan

The upcoming Alia Bhatt-Sidharth Malhotra-Fawad Khan starrer has been in the talk of the town not just because of the stellar cast. People are excited to hear every bit of news about this film because of the bold storyline- one the heroes will play gay! Last year, Dhrama Productions had officially announced, “Here’s the big announcement! Rohit Shetty & Karan Johar, in association with Mukta Arts, presents Ram Lakhan in 2016.” Now some more details have been revealed about ‘Kapoor & Sons’ that is based on the 1989 hit film ‘Ram Lakhan’. It has been reported that the filmmakers have finalized the cast.

There were rumors that Alia and Sidharth would be seen locking lips and getting cozy in this upcoming Karan Johar production. . A source had earlier reported that “There’s one really intense and intimate love-making scene between them. It goes way beyond the kiss they shared in Student of the Year.” But alas! Those were just rumors and a source has now revealed that Fawad is one to be paired opposite Alia, “It’s interesting to see that Alia and Sid will again not be paired together romantically. The young actress will reprise Madhuri Dixit’s role while Sid will play Jackie Shroff. Fawad will play Anil Kapoor’s role and will be wooing Alia in the film.”

In Subhash Ghai’s ‘Ram Lakhan’, Madhuri’s character was called Radha Shastri. While Anil Kapoor and Jackie Shroff had played inspectors- Inspector Lakhan Pratap Singh and Inspector Ram Pratap Singh respectively. Film enthusiasts are all excited with the finalization of the cast. But producer Karan Johar still denies that the cast hasn’t been decided yet. He tweeted on 24th March- “While Rohit and I are extremely excited with the excitement RAM LAKHAN has generated....we would like to say...IT HAS NOT BEEN CAST!!!”

Despite of being just one film old, Fawad Khan has won the hearts of millions. Most reputed newspapers like New York Times had complimented the ‘Khoobsurat’ romance, saying that it “deftly achieves a particularly Disney-like polish.” Now a lot is being expected from the Pakistani actor. The original ‘Ram Lakhan’ won Anil Kapoor loads of fame with all his grooving in ‘One two ka four’ with a handlebar moustache. If Fawad is to reprise this role, one can image how handsome the actor would look in a handlebar moustache! Ladies would surely want the same dynamic ‘One two ka four’ performance from Fawad. Fans would have to wait to see if this new Lakhan shakes his booty on the number.
