Akki-Nargis in Shaukeen remake

Basu Chatterjee’s 1980’s comic film about three old men chasing after a girl-next-door, is all set to be remade by Rumi Jaffery. The filmmaker has roped in actor Akshay Kumar to play the character of Mithun Chakraborty and Nargis Fakri to portray the female lead originally played by Rati Agnihotri. The original flick had a small role for Mithun, who did the film at the peak of his career. But interestingly, now the remake has an A-lister who can bring footfalls into the theater. Reportedly, Akshay has not charged his usual fee for this film as it is not a full length role and only a week’s work is needed from him, but he will have his stake in the film. The three old actors in the original flick Ashok Kumar, Utpal Dutt and A.K Hangal will be portrayed by Anupam Kher, Annu Kapoor and Paresh Rawal.
