The 2001 romantic musical Rehna Hai Terre Dil Mein which became a retro hit, is all set for a remake 20 years later.
Confirming this Ravi Udyawar who has been elected by producer Jacky Bhagnani to direct the remake says, “It’s going to be a remake for today’s generation. Same soul but fresh intense love story.”
However the reports about Vicky Kaushal and Kriti Sanon co-starring in the Rehna Hai Terre Dil Mein remake are not true, as the lead pair is yet to be decided.
The original introduced Madhavan and Dia Mirza to the Hindi cinema. Some years ago there was a talk of a sequel.And Madhavan had expressed his happiness at being part of the sequel,if asked. “All of us worked really hard on the film. 20 years later Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein is still among the most favourite films of my repertoire.”
Madhavan is not averse to a sequel. “I keep getting that all the time. But is a sequel possible now? For that to happen,all of us have to be on the same page. I’d love to take the story forward from where we left it off 20 years ago.”
Now the producers have dropped plans of the sequel and are on to a remake.We wish them luck.
