Babumushoi, zindagi badi honi chahiye … lambi nahin. How often do we quote this dialogue from Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan-starrer iconic 1971 film Anand. Now, this film is all set to get a remake. Yes, you read that right. Don’t worry it will be remade by the movie’s original producer NC Sippy’s grandson Sameer Raj Sippy along with producer Vikram Khakhar. The makers are yet to decide the casting and director.

On Thursday, Bollywood film analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to make the announcement. He wrote, “OFFICIAL REMAKE OF ‘ANAND’ ANNOUNCED… #Anand – one of the most iconic films starring #RajeshKhanna and #AmitabhBachchan, directed by #HrishikeshMukherjee – will be remade by the original producer – #NCSippy’s grandson #SameerRajSippy – along with producer #VikramKhakhar. While the film is in the scripting stages, the makers are yet to finalise the director and star cast. #Anand #AnandRemake.”

“Keeping in mind the sensibilities of the original film and the emotions attached, I felt the current generation needs to be retold the many stories that are so relevant today and specially when there is a great appetite for good content,” said Sameer Raj Sippy.

On the other hand, producer Vikram Khakhar added, “Digging into our own classics, we will find invaluable gems rather than scouting for stories, Internationally or Regionally. Placing Anand in the post Covid era, where we emphasise on the value of life, will enhance the story of Anand.”
