Back in 1994, Andaz Apna Apna didn’t create much buzz on its release but over the years, it has turned into a cult comedy. In fact, the Aamir Khan-Salman Khan starrer continues to make news even now. As the film enters its 25th year in 2019, rumours are rife that the original producers Vinay Sinha and Priti Sinha have decided to “relaunch it with a different plot and background”. Apparently, Ranveer Singh and Varun Dhawan have been approached to step into Aamir and Salman’s shoes for the reboot.

Aamir, on his part, is gung-ho about Andaz Apna Apna’s modern avatar. “I don’t know if it’s [the news about Ranveer and Varun being a part of it] true but if you ask me, they should definitely do it (smiles),” says the superstar, adding: “Andaz Apna Apna is a film that people have loved immensely [in the past], so I am sure they would love to see it. I don’t know what exactly is being planned — a remake, part two or an offshoot. But whatever it is, I’d personally like to see a fresh take [on it]. As an audience, I would love to see what Ranveer, Varun or any of the young actors would do with the characters.”


The PK (2014) actor admits that he has “several special memories” vis-à-vis Andaz Apna Apna. “Personally, among the comic films, I also love Pyaar Kiye Ja (1966). It’s again a mad comedy,” says Aamir, whose latest production venture, Rubaru Roshni has become the talk of the town. “I think it’s a very important film, not just for India, but for the entire world,” says the actor, who launched director Svati Chakravarty Bhatkal with the hard-hitting documentary. She happens to be the fifth new director whom Aamir has launched through his product house.
