A source close to the development has told Mirror, “Chupke Chupke is an iconic film and a favourite of many, including Rajkummar. He loved the idea of a remake and has agreed to come on board. It will have Raj in the dual avatars. The script is still being finalised, while the director and the rest of the cast are yet to be locked but the team is really excited about this one.”


As we have seen in the film, Amitabh Bachchan plays Dharmendra’s best friend who pretends to be Professor Parimal, but actually is Sukumar Sinha who is an English lecturer. Sharmila Tagore played the role of Dharmendra’s wife. With just Rajkummar’s name finalised for Dharamendra’s role in the remake, we can’t wait for the official announcement of the entire cast and the title of the film.
