Ram Lakhan remake a business proposition: Anil Kapoor

MUMBAI: Anil Kapoor is not in favour of a remake of his classic hit Ram Lakhan. Ram Lakhan, released in 1989, was directed by Subhash Ghai and starred Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, Madhuri Dixit, Dimple Kapadia and Raakhee.


“I think remaking Ram Lakhan is more of a business proposition than a creative one. But I think Rohit Shetty and Karan Johar (who have announced that they will be remaking the film) will do their best,” said Kapoor in Mumbai.

He did not name any actor who could be apt for the remake.

When asked if his actor nephew Arjun would be fit for his role, Kapoor said, “I don’t know. I think it depends on filmmakers. There are certain filmmakers who are casting actors more for the excitement of the first look than getting the perfect cast for the bigger picture.”

Meanwhile, the 58-year-old actor is happy with the response to his latest film Dil Dhadakane Do.

“I am glad that the film did so well. It’s a team effort and everyone has done a good job. I am thankful to Zoya for giving me an opportunity to be part of this big project,” he said.

“I am open to playing father… grandfather roles,” he added.
