Emraan Hashmi to step in Aamir Khan`s shoes for `Dil Hai Ki Maanta Nahi` remake
Mumbai: Actor Emraan Hashmi will be stepping into the shoes of superstar Aamir Khan for the remake of 90s hit film `Dil Hai Ki Maanta Nahi`.
Mahesh Bhatt is remaking `Dil Hai Ki Maanta Nahi`, with Hashmi reprising Aamir`s character.
The original film, released in 1991, was directed by Bhatt and had his daughter Pooja Bhatt and Aamir in the lead.
While the director has not been finalised yet, it is learnt that the basic storyline will be same as the original.
"The film I directed was modelled on `It Happened One Night` by Frank Capra, but didn`t do justice to the hero`s character. With this remake, we seek to do justice to the character played originally by Clark Gable, that of an unapologetic rake," Bhatt said in a statement here.
"Emraan fits this character like a glove. With this film, women will now fall in love with him," he said.
In `Dil Hai Ke Maanta Nahi`, Pooja played the role of a daughter of a rich shipping tycoon Anupam Kher, while Aamir played a reporter.
Last year, Pooja had expressed her desire to remake `Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahi` with Alia and Ranbir Kapoor in the lead.
