Mumbai: Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor will be donning a completely new avatar of a biker dude in the remake version of `Chashme Buddoor`.

The 60-year-old will be riding Harley Davidson in the by-lanes of Goa and sporting innumerable tattoos -- like those of a star, flower, other abstract designs, mermaid and bikini- clad girls - all over on his hands.

It is reported that in the film, Kapoor essays the role of a bachelor, a Goan ex-sailor running a restaurant who has crossed the age of marriage but still gets excited at the prospect of meeting a girl.

`Chashme Buddoor` is the remake of 1981 hit romantic comedy by the same name. Besides Kapoor, it stars Pakistani singer-actor Ali Zafar, south actor Siddharth, Divyendu Sharma of `Pyaar Ka Punchnama` fame, south actress Tapsee Pannu, Juhi Chawla and Anupam Kher.

The film will hit cinema houses on April 5.
