- It's the season of remakes in Bollywood and it's not merely restricted to songs. After Farah Khan's is toying with the idea of Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini's Satte Pe Satta remake, a new report suggests Sanjay Dutt's intentions about reviving his father's old classic. A story in Mid-day reveals Dutt's plan to remake Sunil Dutt's 1986 comedy, Padosan albeit with a twist. If you are wondering if the Vaastav actor will reprise his father's role, then the answer is NO. He is in fact keen on playing Kishore Kumar's role in the same.

Speaking about its casting, Sanjay wants to rope in Govinda to play Mehmood's masterji. And the new story will have its twist by pitting two youths against each other. The story will have a rapper competing with a young man who practices classical music. This is where Rajkummar and Ayushmann come in the picture with Sanjay and Govinda playing their mentors.

Sanjay Dutt has already acquired the remake rights from a leading distribution company and his dream of so many years may finally get fulfilled. Considering Dutt's busy schedule, the project is expected to start rolling early next year. While Khurrana and Rao's camaraderie was a major highlight in Bareilly ki Barfi, there's no way they will disappoint this time.
