The original Hrishikesh Mukherjee film Khoobsurat was a family drama starring Rekha and Rakesh Roshan. Produced by Sonam’s sister Rhea Kapoor, the remake of the same, will star Sonam who will be playing a physiotherapist.
While the male lead is yet to be finalized, news is that Prosenjit Chatterjee who became popular in Bollywood with Shanghai will be reprising the role of Ashok Kumar. Confirming the same, Prosenjit said, “Yes, I have been offered the role. I loved the script. It’s Ashok Kumar’s role but in contemporary context. I play a young dad. If everything falls in place I would be happy to take this up.”
The movie will be directed by Shashank Ghosh and is set to go on floor by the end of this year.
