5 years ago

Mumbai: Actress Sonam Kapoor, who would be reprising the character of Rekha from Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Khubsoorat, says, she will bring a modern touch to the iconic role.

 

The 27-year-old has been roped in to play the female lead in the remake of the 1980 hit. The classic comedy is best remembered for Rekha’s portrayal as a vivacious and fun-loving girl.

 

"We are taking the spirit of the character and giving it a modern setting. We are modernising it. We are taking the spirit and energy of the girl, but we are not sticking to the same story line. We are making it more current and new," said the beautiful actress.

 

Before starting the shoot, Sonam also took blessings from the veteran actress so that she could do complete justice to her character.

 

"I did meet her, I got her blessings. I met her at Jab Tak Hai Jaan premiere. She told me it’s a great film I am doing," said Sonam.

 

The original film starred Rekha, Ashok Kumar, Dina Pathak and Rakesh Roshan in the lead.

 

The remake version will be directed by Shashanka Ghosh and produced by Sonam’s father Anil Kapoor and sister Rhea.

 

"I am very excited to work with Shashank Ghosh, who made two fantastic films, which are ‘hatke’. He started the trend. He is one of my dream filmmakers with whom I wanted to work," added gorgeous B’wood diva Sonam.
