Himesh Reshammiya in 'Karz' remake


By Taran Adarsh, IndiaFM

The suspense is over! Himesh Reshammiya's second release as an

actor, after AAP KAA SURROOR, will be produced by T-Series' head

honcho Bhushan Kumar. Now here's something vital on the project: It'll be

a remake of Subhash Ghai's smash hit KARZ. Incidentally, Himesh had

crooned a number from the film, 'Dar-e-dil dard-e-jigar', in AAP KA


Himesh will be playing the part that Rishi Kapoor had enacted in the

original. The other characters -- Tina Munim, Simi Grewal, Raj Kiran,

Durga Khote and Pran -- are in the process of finalization. To be made on

an extravagant scale, the remake of KARZ will have fresh tunes composed

by Himesh. In fact, Himesh has decided on a makeover for this film.

Meanwhile, Ghai has decided against remaking films produced by

Mukta Arts himself. A text message to this writer says it all: “How can I

remake my own scripts, when I am looking ahead at newer ideas? But, I am

sure, the remake of KARZ will be welcomed by the present-day generation

and I wish luck to Bhushan and Himesh.”
