Chashme Buddoor remake to have Siddharth in the lead.

David Dhawan is all set to remake Sai Paranjpye’s 1981 cult comedy Chashme Buddoor. While Pakistani singer-actor Ali Zafar has stepped into the role that Farooq Shaikh played in the original, Dhawan has now roped in Rang De Basanti star Siddharth.

The South actor, who was last seen in Chandan Arora’s Striker, is going to play the late Ravi Baswani’s role in the film.

Casting for Ravi Baswani’s role was both tough and emotional for Dhawan. He explains, “Ravi is the only member of the cast who is no more and I miss him.

Ravi and I were roommates when we were both starting out in our careers. I had to put Ravi in safe hands. I had to cast someone who I knew would do justice to his part.”

It was Siddharth’s close proximity to Dhawan that landed him the role. “I’ve known Siddharth for a long time. He is a dear friend. And only a friend can play Ravi Baswani’s role,” said Dhawan.

Siddharth and Dhawan were earlier supposed to work together in Hook Ya Crook (2010), which later was made with John Abraham in the lead.

Going by Amitabh Bachchan’s guest appearance in the original, Dhawan also intends to bring onboard Big B to make an appearance in his remake.

    Chashme buddoor was a great movie. I don’t think david dhawan can recreate that magic of simplicity as Sai Paranjpe did, judging by the type of movies he’s made before…

    I think in the old movie, the roles of Omi and Jomu are supposed to be of losers (which are brilliantly portrayed by not-so-good looking but talented actors like Ravi Baswani and Rakesh Bedi). Casting a very handsome guy like Siddharth in any of these roles will be a total contradiction!
