We talk about the latest news that Sanjay Leela Bhansali is going to remake Subhash Ghai’s Khalnayak. It leads to various speculations about who can play iconic Madhuri Dixit’s character?
Ji haan, main hoon Khalnayak!
Who can forget this iconic dialogue from the Sanjay Dutt starrer, Khalnayak which was released more than twenty years ago!
More than the dialogue, the movie was famous for two major controversies.
One was Sanjay Dutt’s arrest a month before the release of the movie in relation to terrorism charges (he is in prison nowadays for the same crime!) and the controversial double-meaning song of that era, Choli ke peechhe kya hai!
Both these scandals were enough for enormous free-of-cost publicity for the film as well as making it a super-duper hit.
Now, given the shortage of ideas our modern so-called intellectually superior (dumb, actually!!) film-makers have and the greed to en-cash on old recipes, here is another project which will be remade. Yes, Sanjay Leela Bhansali will be co-producing the remake of Khalnayak with the original producer-director, Subhash Ghai!
Sad news, isn’t it?
Touching a classic almost always leads to a bad product. Very few remakes have done justice to the original and going by Sanjay’s background, he is surely going to screw up the original. He does make good originals, but remakes, nahh!
Still, since our opinion won’t matter as far as whether the movie should be remade or not, we thought let’s think who can fit into Madhuri Dixit’s role. Madhuri’s Choli ke peechhe.. number was a major reason for film’s success.
So is there any actress who can slip into that seductive raunchy yet very classy role? Let’s see what options we have:
1) Deepika Padukone
She is this super classy woman, but a terrific actress who has proved her mettle. Going by her performance in Goliyon ki Rasleela, Ram-Leela, she seems a decent fit to play a dancer a la, Madhuri! She has a hot body to carry off the oomph as well.
2) Alia Bhatt
She might be too young, but then her age hasn’t stopped her from giving amazing performances till date. So purely on her acting appeal, we think she can be considered. However, the Khalnayak’s role will have to be donned by some younger actor or else the chemistry might fail.
3) Anushka Sharma
She might qualify purely based on her sexy body and on-screen bubbly personality. She is not the best actress or an amazing dancer, but given the shortage of great female performers, she has made the cut to top three options purely on her sex-appeal! May be she does justice to the role.
4) Huma Qureshi
Now this must have come as a surprise to you guys, isn’t it? But trust us, this girl may not be a great classical dancer, but her acting talent is comparable to none. She might not do what Madhuri has done, but she can surely bring something new to the table. And yes, her sex appeal is right up there, alongside Madhuri’s!
5) Parineeti Chopra
Amongst the new lot of actresses, Parineeti is one actress who firmly believes in acting talent rather than just gorgeous looks. She does look hot and beautiful, but everything fades in front of her superlative acting performances! She might be able to mouth those street-smart dialogues with aplomb even while romancing with a gangster!
These are five girls who can really bring a new flavor to age old Choli ke peechhe kya hai song without making it vulgar or cheap thereby making new Khalnayak a movie worth watching!
Now, let’s see who will portray Sanju baba’s Khalnayak!
