Everything that is old is new again in today’s Bollywood and Shah Rukh Khan‘s 1992 musical romance ‘Deewana‘ is no different.  The original version starred SRK as a man who falls in love with a widow and overcomes many obstacles to win her hand.  Rishi Kapoor played the widow’s murdered husband and the late Divya Bharti played the widow.

Guddu Dhanoa, who produced the original, announced his plans to remake the classic but insists it will share only the name and romantic subject matter with the original.  He elaborated by saying “We are making a romantic film but it is a completely different story. We are using the title ‘Deewana‘ but something would be added to the title. It is like how Bhatts are making films like ‘Murder‘ and ‘Jannat‘. I am also doing something similar.”

Although the script is ready, no word on castings yet as Dhanoa said “We are in talks with actors but nothing is finalized yet.

It’s also unknown whether SRK himself will be involved in the project, but audiences can next see the star with Deepika Padukone in ‘Chennai Express‘ coming out August 8th.

For those feeling nostalgic, here is the song ‘Aisi Deewangi‘ with SRK and Divya Bharti:

We’re hoping the wardrobe, hair, and everything else stay true to the original as it’s 90’s-tastic(!), but it’s not likely.
