Recently it was reported that Bollywood actors Ranveer Singh and Varun Dhawan to star together in the sequel/remake to 1994 released classical comedy film Andaz Apna Apna, starring Salman Khan and Aamir Khan. One section of the fans started expressing their excitement for the film, while other section started targetting the makers why they are planning to ruin the old classic film.
People have even started targetting that what happens if the film failed and if Ranveer and Varun Dhawan failed to do justice with the comedy like what Salman and Aamir did in the Original. This reaction made the makers announce and clear the air about the film.
A source told Pinkvilla, "The producers Vinay and Priti Sinha are planning to do Andaz Apna Apna - it won’t be a sequel or remake. Nor will Raj Kumar Santoshi direct it. While they have not decided yet what exactly it will be, they are sure it won’t be a remake or sequel but something as exciting. Raj Kumar Santoshi’s Andaz Apna Apna, starring Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Raveena Tandon and Karisma Kapoor, was a cult movie and one cannot mess with the original. One should not touch such a great film and that too 25 years later and destroy it by a remake or sequel. The director is yet to be finalised."
"AAA reloaded is a big film and the makers are treading cautiously as they want to finalise everything before making an announcement. Ranveer and Varun have been approached to play Amar and Prem for their comic flair, who again will be happy-go-lucky characters but not the same ones we saw in the 1994 movie. Both are good friends off screen and will be able to carry off their roles with ease. This will be set in 2019 and promises to be another laugh riot yet with underlying emotions. The iconic character of Crime Master Gogo (played by Shakti Kapoor earlier) will also make a comeback with a contemporary actor and his character will be more stylised and modern." added source.
Significantly, Rajkumar Santoshi directorial 1994 released film Andaaz Apna Apna was not a hit at the box office but it became cult after it started coming to television screens.
