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.
