MUMBAI: David Dhawan is planning a remake of Basu Chatterji’s 1975 made rom-com Choti Si Baat.
Choti Si Baat is about a painfully shy young man Arun Pradeep (Amol Palekar), who lacks self-confidence and fails to stand up for his convictions; he is in the process making a mockery of himself. One fine day he comes across Prabha Narayan (Vidya Sinha) at the bus stop en route to work and it‘s love at first sight.. Lacking enough courage and unsure if his feelings are being reciprocated, he pines for her from afar and follows her around from a safe distance. Prabha, fully aware of his affections, secretly relishes his discomfort, while waiting for him to make the first move.
In his desperation, Pradeep finally turns to Colonel Julius Nagendranath Wilfred Singh (Ashok Kumar) who agrees to help him and, thus, begins the turnaround as Singh begins to mould Arun into a mature, confident young man.
It is being said that Dhawan is in plans to cast Anil Kapoor and Ali Zafar in stellar roles. The film will have Zafar play the role of the shy introvert who takes the help of Kapoor to win over his lady love.
