Ram Lakhan remake: Jacqueline to step into Dimple’s shoes


‘Kick’ success tuned Jacqueline Fernandez’s luck. She has become the hot favourite of filmmaker Karan Johar. Kjo was highly impressed with Jacqueline Fernandez’s performance in ‘Kick’ and he immediately roped her for his home production, ‘Brothers’ starring Akshay Kumar and Sidharth Malhotra. ‘Ram Lakhan’ remake also happens to be his production.

It is learnt that Jacqueline will step into Dimple Kapadia’s shoes in the remake to be directed by Rohit Shetty. In the original, Dimple was paired with Ram, played by Jackie Shroff. Arjun Kapoor has been roped in to play Ram while Ranveer Singh has been approached for the role of Lakhan while the makers are in talk with Alia Bhatt to play the role of Radha, enacted by Madhuri Dixit. In the original, Anil Kapoor played the popular character Lakhan. Amrita Singh might be roped in to play the role of Rakhee, mother of Ram and Lakhan. If everything goes as per plan then this would be Ranveer and Arjun second movie together after 'Gunday'. 

Currently, Jacqueline is busy shooting for ‘Roy’ with Arjun Rampal and Ranbir Kapoor while she will soon start shooting for ‘Brothers’. She has also bagged English film, ‘According to Matthew’, and a Hollywood thriller.
