Remake of 1982 film Shaukheen in offing


MUMBAI: Filmmaker Rohit Roy is planning a remake of Basu Chatterjee‘s Shaukheen with Rishi Kspoor, Naseeruddin Shah and Boman Irani who will play 60-plus men who not only chase girls but also have a good time in life.

The older version had three seasoned actors Ashok Kumar, Utpal Dutt and AK Hangal playing three lecherous old men.

Kapoor was quoted in media saying that he has agreed to do the project.

Talking about the script, Kapoor added, "In this day and age, Shaukeen wouldn‘t work. It‘s less Shaukeen now and more Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. It is the story of three senior guys out to do the things they never dared to do before."
