MUMBAI: Indra Kumar  has reportedly announced to remake hit  '90s film Dil which features Aamir Khan and Madhuri Dixit. The script of the film has  also been finalised.

"I had been planning to make the sequel to Aamir Khan and Madhuri Dixit starrer Dil for some time now. We have cracked a script and called it Dil Again,”   Indra was quoted as saying. 

It is also learnt that the filmmaker  is looking out for actors to play the lead. 

 Meanwhile, Indra Kumar’s next-Total Dhamaal is slated for February 22 release. The comedy-drama stars Ajay Devgn, Madhuri Dixit Nene, Anil Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Javed Jaffrey and Riteish Deshmukh in pivotal roles.

On the other hands, with the official announcement of the remake of Pati Patni Aur Woh, another of Chupke Chupke on the cards and speculation over Coolie No. 1 and Ram Lakhan being remade.

The  filmmakers are clearly revisiting Bollywood classics with the hope  that  the story that worked  decades back again create magic with the millennial audience.

Juhi Chaturvedi, who has scripted October and Piku, was quoted as saying, “A remake should push boundaries only to the extent that it can recreate the same hype and emotions as the original version.

While, screenwriter Mayank Tewari, known for films such as Newton and The Accidental Prime Minister was reported to have said : “Remakes at times are not able to do justice to the original work.”

Kanika Dhillon, who wrote Manmarziyan and Kedarnath says, “It’s more important to be excited about your own stories or even the one you are retelling and bring your own voice and take to it.”
