Feroz Khan's 1980 blockbuster Qurbani
remake is reported to be
directed by Sanjay Gupta. Feroz Khan who had grand plans of casting his
son Fardeen and Saif Ali Khan in the roles originally played by himself
and Vinod Khanna, it's one of his closest dream to remake Qurbani
now titled Kurbani
Sources reveal that, if Gupta hadn't come forward to take on the
responsibility, the project would have gone into the cold storage.
Sanjay Gupta is a die-hard Feroz Khan fan and this remake is his way of
paying tribute to the cinema of 1980s that he has always admired. But
Khan was so much impressed by Gupta's enthusiasm that he decided to
produce the new Kurbani
jointly with him.
Presently, Fardeen is slated to step into his father's role. The stars
to play Vinod's, Zeenat Aman's Amjad Khan's roles have yet to be
decided. Gupta was faced with choice of casting Vinod's and Amjad's
sons, but found the idea too gimmicky, and will not play around with
his homeage to the hit film and its flamboyant maker. But what is
likely is that Mallika Sherawat will play Zeenat's role. And some of
Qurbani's original music by Kalyanji-Anandji and Biddu, including Aap
Jaisa Meri koi Zindagi Mein Aaye, will be retained. Final confirmation
is yet to be made by both the parties.
