Mona Kapoor-Archana Shourie's Future Studios played host to Kamal Sadanah's remake of VICTORIA NO. 203 (the smash-hit of 1972), directed by Anant Mahadevan.
'VICTORIA NO 203 was not only a commercial hit but also remains an ever-green film in terms of recognition across generations. I am now re-making VICTORIA NO.203 into a contemporary, fun-filled, light crime caper revolving around a diamond heist. The star cast includes Om Puri, Anupam Kher, Javed Jafferi, Jimmy Sheirgill, Preeti Jhangiani, Tora Khasgir. We are also introducing as the leading lady Soniya Vinod Mehra, who is the daughter of Late Mr. Vinod Mehra. Soniya will be enacting the role played by Saira Banu in the original film,' informs Kamal Sadanah.
The current shoot at Future Studios is the opening sequence of the film. Here both the central negative characters, Javed Jafferi and Preeti Jhangiani are present. The scene is an integral part of the film and a perfect start to trigger off an action-packed attempt on the part of all the characters in the film to acquire these diamonds.
