Subhash Ghai, Rishi Kapoor flag off Karzzzz

MUMBAI: Bhushan Kumar’s mega film Karzzzz was flagged off on 25 January on the T-Series premises with a puja to introduce the entire star cast of the film.

Hosted by RJ and anchor Siddharth Kannan, the event saw the presence of the film’s original creator Subhash Ghai and actor Rishi Kapoor, who shared fond memories of the film and expressed their heartiest wishes to the present crew.

The cast and crew of Karzzzz comprising singer-turned actor Himesh Reshammiya, debutante Shweta, Danny Denzongpa, Raj Babbar and director Satish Kaushik, along with Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Divya Khosla Kumar, Tanya Kumar and Tulsi Kumar from T-Series were also present.

Ghai said, “It’s a big compliment that they wish to bring the original film back to life.” On the other hand, Kapoor said that he thoroughly enjoyed portraying Monty and he looks forward to the new Karzzzz.

Produced by Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar, Karzzzz is a remake of Ghai’s 1980 film about reincarnation. Indra Kumar’s daughter Shweta will make her debut with Karzzzz and play the lead role of Tina Munim opposite Himesh Reshammiya, who will don Rishi Kapoor’s role for the same. Urmila Matondkar will play Simi Garewal’s character in Karzzzz.

Directed by Satish Kaushik, the film also stars Gulshan Grover, Danny Denzongpa, Rohini Hatangadi and Raj Babbar. Reshammiya also scores a hat trick by acting, singing and composing the music for the film. The shooting is scheduled to commence from 10 February and the film will be shot in South Africa, Kenya and Mumbai.

T-Series has bought the remake rights from Mukta Arts for the original film Karz directed by Subhash Ghai. The original film had a cast of Rishi Kapoor, Tina Munim, Simi Garewal, Pran and Premnath amongst others.
