Ever since Bol Bachchan was announced, there have been speculations galore around it being an official remake of Amol Palekar-Utpal Dutt starrer Golmaal. Since Rohit Shetty is the director of Bollywood's biggest franchise till date, Golmaal, there were no doubts whatsoever that it was time for payback. However, as it has turned out, even though rights of Hrishikesh Mukherjee directed laugh fest have been bought by the makers of Bol Bachchan, there would be an altogether different spin to the tale, hence ensuring that quite a few surprises would be in store for the viewers.
"For Bol Bachchan, Rohit didn't want any controversies whatsoever", says a source attached to the film, "For his Sunday, he had bought rights of the Telugu film Anukokunda Oka Roju. Ditto for Singham which is the remake of namesake Tamil film. This is the reason why even though only the basic thread of old Golmaal has been picked for Bol Bachchan, he insisted with his producers that complete rights of Golmaal were bought so that no one pointed a finger in his direction in future."
What must have played in Rohit's mind is his earlier film Golmaal Returns for which he was accused of lifting the plot of an old film called Aaj Ki Taaza Khabar. He was obviously hurt since there were barely any similarities.
"Yes, for Bol Bachchan too I could have gone ahead, made the film and then comfortably made an official statement that I was just inspired by Golmaal. In any case almost entire screenplay has been changed here, just like it is the case with Singham as well. However I wanted to stay away from controversies", says Rohit who is currently high on the success of Singham and would begin shooting of Bol Bachchan in August.
This decision has come for support from Ajay as well who would be working in his eight successive film with Rohit.
"Yes, we have bought the rights even though we have changed the film completely. People ask me whether I am playing Utpal Dutt and Abhishek has stepped into Amol Palekar in Bol Bachchan. My answer to them is - 'Wait and watch before making any assumptions'", smiles Ajay.
We sure are waiting and watching Ajay!
