It was a film that went on to define the young, yuppie generation. A film that was accorded cult status almost instantly. A film that redefined the ultimate male-bonding angle of films in Bollywood; and became a sub-genre in itself. We are talking, of course, about Dil Chahta Hai!
Dil Chahta Hai Rewind:
Farhan Akhtar’s debut directorial was a blockbuster in every sense of the word. But more than its Box Office success, people fondly remember the film for giving us three of the most lovable boys-to-men-characters seen in Hindi cinema. The bromance between Saif Ali Khan, Aamir Khan and Akshaye Khanna.
And now it looks like the trio of Saif Ali Khan, director Farhan Akhtar and producer Ritesh Sidhwani might reprise the magic of Dil Chahta Hai, for an all-new film!
After a gap of nearly thirteen years, the Dil Chahta Hai team might reunite once again, with Saif in a solo hero project. Saif is reportedly in talks with Farhan and Ritesh and their production company, Excel Entertainment, for a film which will be headlined by the Nawab of Pataudi.
Saif’s role, according to industry whispers, will be along the lines of his take in films like Love Aaj Kal and Cocktail, meaning to say he will play a flamboyant, man-about-town. The female lead is yet to be finalised, according to reports. But we wish Saif once again teams up with his Cocktail co-star Deepika Padukone.
