Undaunted by his age, the 86-year old Dev Anand is going to remake his 1971 hit, HARE RAMA HARE KRISHNA soon.
"I will shoot a new version of HARE RAMA HARE KRISHNA in Nepal very soon. The script is ready. People want another HARE RAMA HARE KRISHNA I know that," Anand told reporters who were there to have a first look of his upcoming directorial venture CHARGESHEET.
"If people can make remakes and biopics, why can't there be a remake of this film, Anand asked. The film will be made keeping in perspective the present generation,"' the actor said, adding that his film was about drugs and hippies.
Anand's last few directorial ventures, CENSOR (2001), LOVE AT TIMES SQUARE (2003) and MR PRIME MINISTER (2005), sank at the box office. But the legendary filmmaker is not disheartened.
Produced by Navketan films, CHARGSHEET is a suspense thriller where the evergreen star plays a pivotal role. The film also features ex-Samajwadi party leader Amar Singh as a home minister in the film.
Anand also spoke of his classic HUM DONO that would be soon released in a colour version. "HUM DONO has been coloured and it will be out very soon. It looks fantastic, as if it has been shot in colour," Anand remarked.
