As previously reported, Arjun Kapoor is collaborating with Mudassar Aziz on an unscripted comedy to be produced by Vashu and Jackky Bhagnani. Soon after, it was learned that the film in question is called Meri Patni Ka Remake and will begin production in the second half of 2022.
And now, it has been bought into attention that the comedy caper will have not one, but two female leads. The team members are in talks with Rakul Preet Singh and Bhumi Pednekar to play the female leads in this comic film.
Even the title implies that the story centres around not one, but two female main characters. After considering various names, the crew has begun discussions with Rakul Preet Singh and Bhumi Pednekar about playing two of the film's key characters. The humour of the Meri Patni Ka Remake is very similar to Govinda films from the 1990s, mentioned the report.
The documentation and other things should be completed within a couple of weeks. The discussions are now moving in the right direction, stated the report.
Meri Patni Ka Remake is set to begin filming in June/July of this year, with a start-to-finish timeline. For the time being, specifications about the storyline are being swept under the rug. Aside from the three leads, a large ensemble is anticipated to join the project to boost the comedy quotient.
The remake of Meri Patni Ka is currently in pre-production. It will be Bhumi's second collaboration with Mudassar after Pati Patni Aur Woh, while Rakul will be joining hands with the director for the first time.
