Yes, you read it right. The original movie was helmed by Mahesh Bhatt, while the remake will be directed by south actress-filmmaker Revathi.
A source informs, “Emraan has been approached to play one of the male leads, possibly Kulbhushan Kharbanda’s role. The actor is pretty excited about the part, given that the original was tactfully and meticulously looked over by Bhatt himself. Emraan’s closeness with the Bhatt family is well known and Emraan obviously seems to be an obvious choice for the role.” On the other hand, Swara plays the role of a deserted wife who takes the road to self-discovery after her husband leaves her.
