Nikhil Dwivedi learns Marathi for `Arjun` remake
Mumbai: Nikhil Dwivedi, who debuted with Shah Rukh Khan production ‘My Name Is Anthony Gonsalves’, is busy brushing on his Marathi skills for the remake of the Sunny Deol starrer 1985 hit ‘Arjun’.
The two-film-old is seeking help from theatre actor Rahul Awate to get into the skin of the character and get a correct twang and dialect.
"Yes, I am doing the remake of `Arjun`. The premise would be similar but the story would be completely different because the problems that we were facing in the mid 1980s aren’t relevant any more as there has been a huge shift in the society," said Nikhil.
Industry sources say that though the concept and ethos of the film will be retained, the issues and treatment will reflect the current times.
Nikhil`s future projects also include `Raavan` and `Basra`.
