Himesh Reshammiya looks all set after negotiating the remake rights of Shekhar Kapoor’s classic Masoom (1983) from the original producers Chanda Dutt and Devi Dutt.
The original movie starred Naseeruddin Shah and Shabana Azmi as a couple and how they struggle with the reality of an illegitimate son in the husband’s life. This emotional flick was based on a book by Erich Segal - Man, Woman and Child.
The remake is to be directed by Bedobrata Pain whose historical drama Chittagong had garnered some critical acclaim. Himesh Reshammiya reportedly wants Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan to play the female and male lead and if reports are to be believed, the couple has actually agreed to do the film! “Now the details are being worked out,” the source said.
