‘Saathiya’ is said to be one of the cult films in the genre of romance. The movie, which was released in 2002, is still loved by the audiences, and the songs composed by AR Rahman are still famous. It starred Vivek Oberoi and Rani Mukerji in the lead roles, and recently we met former for an interaction where he was asked who would he love to see in the remake of the film, if it is ever attempted.
When he was asked if ‘Saathiya’ should be remade, and if yes, which actors should play the lead roles, Vivek said, “I think there is no film that shouldn’t be remade. If a story is beautiful, it should be told again and again.”
Talking about the actors who can do the role, Vivek said, “It would be interesting to see Ranbir Kapoor reprising my role of Adi. He is fantastic when it comes to playing real-life characters.” (Also Read: Vivek Oberoi wants Salman Khan’s ‘Tubelight’ to break records of ‘Baahubali’)
Well, he further found it difficult to name an actress who can play Rani’s role. He said, “It’s tough to match Rani’s performance.” The actor asked the journalists to help him out with the names of a few actresses. When probed him with Alia Bhatt’s name, he said, “I think Alia Bhatt would be apt.”
We quite agree with Vivek that Ranbir and Alia can be a part of the remake of ‘Saathiya’. What do you guys think?
