Aishwarya Rai Bachchan much on the big screen. The last time we saw her at the movies was in Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Even though she didn’t have a big role in the film, Aishwarya surely made a mark as Saba Taliyar Khan. Now we will see her in Fanne Khan, and needless to say, we cannot wait for it.
The good part is that Aishwarya is listening to a lot of scripts these days, so in all likelihood, we will get to see her more often now. Aishwarya has revealed that she has been offered two films and they are still “working out the details.” These two movies are remakes of Bollywood classics – Raat Aur Din and Woh Kaun Thi?.
“I’ve been approached for the remake of Raat Aur Din, which is a great opportunity and what’s funny is while filming Shabd, Sanju Sir (Sanjay Dutt) said he’d have loved for me to play the part, and I was very touched. We’re still working out the details. I’ve also been approached for a remake of Woh Kaun Thi?,” confirmed Aishwarya, in an interview with Vogue India.
Talking about the original films, Raat Aur Din, which released in 1967 was directed by Satyen Bose. Nargis played the lead role in the film and won the National Film Award for Best Actress for her role as Varuna, a married woman who suffers from multiple personality disorder. Over the years, the film, which also starred Pradeep Kumar and Feroz Khan has developed a cult following.
Woh Kaun Thi?, that released in 1964, is a black-and-white psychological mystery starring Sadhana, Manoj Kumar, Helen, and Prem Chopra. Dr. Anand, a well-respected doctor meets a lady (Sadhana) by the road, who asks to be dropped off at a graveyard. There, she disappears singing a love song. His mother arranges a marriage for him.
His bride is the very woman he dropped off at the graveyard. The film became a hit at the box office, and especially the music by Madan Mohan won many hearts. KriArj Entertainment (the same production house which is producing Fanne Khan) has brought the rights for the Hindi remake.
Both of these remakes seem to be very interesting projects and both of them belong in the same genre. Which project do you think Aiswharya should pick? Or are you of the opinion that she should lap up both of them? Take our poll and let us know.>
