At a recent event, the multi-talented Farhan Akhtar revealed his next home production with Ritesh Sidhwani JUGNU. The shoot for the same is expected to begin in the month of October. Keeping the mystery intact, Farhan did not mention the theme of his next movie. It remains for the fans to wait to know of Farhan Akhtar’s role in the project. Would it be as a scriptwriter, as an actor, as a director-producer, or would a new talent be revealed, all to know in good time?
The title of the film takes us back more than four decades back to a Dharmendra starrer with the same title JUGNU. It also featured Hema Malini, Lalita Pawar, Mehmood, Prem Chopra, Nazir Hussain, Ajit, and Pran. Producer-Director Pramod Chakravorty’s JUGNU was about an extremely intelligent crook with a ‘Golden’ heart who had a remarkable ability to steal from the most protected setups. The movie is also known for a popular dialogue, "Baap ke naam kaa sahara kamzor log lete hai" (The weak seek to be known by their father's reputation). It went on to become one of the most loved and famous dialogues of all-time in Hindi cinema then.
It tempts us to believe that it could be a remake of this movie looking at Farhan Akhtar’s DON franchise too. Until then, Farhan is excited about his break next month, where for the love of football, Farhan will be traveling to Spain as the official guest from India to watch the UEFA Champions League Final at the Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid, Spain on June 1, 2019.
