Sunny to reprise dad's role

Sunny Deol has reportedly agreed to play the lead role in remake of 1987 hit film ‘Hukumat’, which featured Dharmendra and Rati Agnihotri as the lead pair. The proposed remake will be made by Anil Sharma, who had also directed the original flick. Sunny Deol and dad Dharmendra have co-starred in many films together, but sunny has never ever reprised a role ever portrayed by his father. A source said, "Hukumat (1987) starring Dharmendra and Rati Agnihotri was a runaway hit. If things go well then Prakash Raj will play the villain (originally played by Sadavshiv Amrapurkar) in the film." Sharma also added that "It is too early to talk about it as I am busy with another film. There is no other actor better than Sunny to play the lead. Only he can do justice to Dharamji's character." Hukumat, the highest-grossing Bollywood film of 1987, had a record 75 weeks run in one theater. Sharma also plans to reuse one of the Laxmikant- Pyarelal tracks from the original - Na Zulm.
