July 25, 2012, (Sawfnews.com) – YRF Entertainment, the Hollywood wing of Yash Raj Films, is remaking their 2005 con-com Bunty Aur Babli headlining Abhishek Bachchan and Rani Mukerji in English.
“I’m remaking ‘Bunty Aur Babli’ in English. It’s in the scripting stage and the casting is not done. I’m looking at Michael Cera and Taylor Swift. I haven’t approached them as yet, but I want to make the film a little more quirky and comic than the Indian one,” Uday Chopra told IANS.
The film, that also featured Amitabh Bachchan in a cameo role, saw Aishwarya Rai do her debut item song Kajarare along with Amitabh and Abhishek.
Uday says he is just borrowing the story from Bollywood but writers, directors, actors will be all American.
“The idea is to think of ourselves as an American company. Writers, directors everyone will be from there. But if a story requires an Indian character or if A.R.Rahman agrees to do my music, I will like it.”
Uday will focus on making comedies and sci-fi films only for Hollywood – leave drama films for Bollywood.
