Bollywood is on a spree of remaking classic Bollywood movies. The latest movie that is being remade is Sanjiv Kumar classic 80’s movie ‘Pati Patni Aur Woh’.
For the remake, Karthik Aaryan will step into Sajiv Kumar’s role as a married man torn between his wife and an attractive woman.
On Tuesday, Kartik shared his first look from the Mudassar Aziz film.
The actor shared the look on social media and wrote, "Miliye Lucknow ke Chintu Tyagi ji se - Samarpit, aashiq mizaaj pati.Pati Patni Aur Woh."
In the picture, he is dressed in simple formals and sports a moustached look.
The shooting for the movie began this week.
On Monday, Kartik shared a photo from the sets of the film, captioning it, “First Day with Patni or Woh ? Clap to be removed soon.”
The remake of the 1978 film is being directed by Aziz, who has previously directed ‘Dulha Mil Gaya’, ‘Happy Bhag Jayegi’ and ‘Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi’.
The film is an adaptation of the 1978 drama with the same title, which featured Sanjeev Kumar, Vidya Sinha and Ranjeeta Kaur in the lead roles. The film revolves around Ranjeet (Sanjeev), who has a son with his wife Sharda (Vidya) but has a soft corner for his secretary Nirmala (Ranjeeta).
The remake film stars Ananya Panday and Bhumi Pednekar as the two female leads.
The film will be produced by Bhushan Kumar of T-Series and Abhay Chopra and Juno Chopra of BR Studios. This will be Ananya’s second film after her debut, Punit Malhotra’s Student Of The Year 2.
Bhushan Kumar had earlier said in a statement earlier that Juno, Abhay and Mudassar have given an “interesting tweak” to the story. “Juno, Abhay and Mudassar have given an interesting tweak to the story that matches today’s times. Kartik, Bhumi and Ananya are new age actors who are talented and add their spark to the story,” he said.
The release date of Pati Patni Aur Who has not been announced yet.
