It was announced on Wednesday that the official remakes of the three well-known Indian movies “Bawarchi,” “Mili,” and “Koshish” would begin soon. These eagerly awaited projects will be produced by a team that includes Sameer Raj Sippy from SRS Productions, Anushree Mehta, Abir Sengupta, and Jaadugar Films.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh announced the news on Twitter and noted that these three films, which were directed by the great directors, are considered as timeless classics. The original movies, “Koshish,” “Bawarchi,” and “Mili,” which were made in 1972, and 1975, respectively, were directed by Gulzar and Hrishikesh Mukherjee and starred prominent performers like Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Rajesh Khanna, and Sanjeev Kumar, all of whom gave performances of their careers.
Anushree Mehta and Abir Sengupta of Jaadugar Films said together, “We are absolutely thrilled to be setting forth this magical journey of making three of our all-time favorite movies in a new form and style.” The production team acknowledged the responsibility that comes with reproducing such well-known movies while also expressing their excitement.
While presenting these films in a fresh format and aesthetic, they hope to pay tribute to their illustrious cinematic history. Anushree Mehta and Abir Sengupta committed to live up to the responsibilities and expectations that come with recreating great works of art that have forever changed Indian film.
According to Sameer Raj Sippy, “I believe that movies are about defining moments, interesting enough to share with people, and for that reason I think it’s time we take classic stories and bring them in to the present day, with a newer and modern outlook.” He draws inspiration from the family filmmaking tradition passed down by his father Raj Sippy, uncle Romu Sippy, and grandpa Shri N. C. Sippy. By setting these time-honored tales in the present, he hopes to uphold the tradition. His goal is to offer these classic stories with a new and modern perspective since he believes in the power of defining moments being shared through film.
The production team is excited to share these beloved tales with a new generation of audiences, even if the cast and crew of the remakes have not yet been revealed.
