Now Udita Goswami turns to supernatural with Rokk

Bump into most producers these days and youd hear that they are either remaking a yesteryear hit or making a sequel of an immensely successful film. The latest is, Suniel Shetty and Shabbir Boxwala [producer of YUN HOTA TO KYA HOTA?] have joined hands to remake Gulshan Rais blockbuster hit JOHNY MERA NAAM, which starred the evergreen Dev Anand in the title role and was directed by Vijay Anand.

If trustworthy sources are to be believed, Suniel and Shabbir have roped in David Dhawan to direct the remake, while talks are on with Abhishek Bachchan to step into Dev Anands shoes. If the project materializes, itll be the first time David and Abhishek will be working together.

Whats true is that Suniel and I have joined hands and have also signed David to direct a film. We are keen to remake JOHNY MERA NAAM, but we havent acquired the rights of the film yet. Rajiv Rai [Gulshan Rais son, who holds the rights of the smash hit] is in Los Angeles at the moment and it all depends on whether or not he wishes to part with the rights, Shabbir enlightens me.

Is it true that Abhishek is tipped to enact the title role? Like I said, things will fall in place once Rajiv returns to India. He is expected back by this month-end. But the moment we acquire the remaking rights, well take it forward. As of now, things are still in the preliminary stages, he adds.
