The iconic 1988 film Tezaab featuring Madhuri Dixit and Anil Kapoor is all set for a remake. Film producer Murad Khetani of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, and Animal has acquired the rights of the N Chandra directorial. Murad will soon begin work on the pre-production of this remake.
The original film was directed by N Chandra and also featured Chunky Panday, Anupam Kher and Kiran Kumar in pivotal roles.
In an interview with ETimes, Murad Khetani said, “It is an iconic movie and we will adapt the story to modern times when we make it.” However, he didn’t divulge any more details about the project.
But filmmaker N Chandra is not happy with the remake of Tezaab. He said, “The classics should not be touched and the reason for that is, those films were made in a certain period and the story was embedded and related to that time. Tezaab was about the social era and you cannot remake the era. You cannot replicate the film by putting it into another bottle.”
Tezaab has earned a cult status and Madhuri Dixit danced her way into the hearts of her fans by singing, Ek Do Teen. Choreographer Saroj Khan won the Filmfare award for the chartbuster. Anil Kapoor as Munna had won the Filmfare Award for Best Actor.
