Karan Johar announced the remake of 1989 Bollywood blockbuster, Ram Lakhan in association with Rohit Shetty a few years back. There was a huge speculation regarding the cast, music, and the action sequences as soon as the announcement was made.
However, it seems like fans will have to handle disappointment as the remake might not materialise. Rohit Shetty made a statement that the Ram Lakhan remake is not happening anytime soon.
At a recent event, the Singham director was asked about his next film and he said that he's busy with other projects with Karan Johar and Ram Lakhan remake is not one of them. He said:
"We are not doing it (Ram Lakhan remake). Me and Karan are doing something else. Very soon, we'll tell you what we are doing."
He further revealed that the announcement for this new film will be made next month. "Let them miss me more. Next month, I will announce what I am doing," he added.
This is not the first Dharma Productions film which seems to be shelved.
Another much-anticipated film, Shuddhi, never saw the ray of light and is still under pre-production process. From Kareena Kapoor Khan-Hrithik Roshan to Sidharth Malhotra-Alia Bhatt, the cast of the film has been speculated time and again but Shuddhi is yet to take form.
The Ram Lakhan remake was going to be directed by Rohit Shetty, produced by Dharma Productions, Rohit Shetty Films and Subhash Ghai's Mukta Arts together.
