Sunil Bohra to remake Satyakam
Joining the ranks of Hrishikesh Mukherjee classics being remade (Khubsoorat, Chupke Chupke) is Satyakam, which is considered by many to be the director's finest film ever.
After months of chasing the producer of the 1969 film - Sher Jung Singh Panchi, Sunil Bohra (Gangs of Wasseypur 1 & 2) finally succeeded in buying the remake rights from him in late December last year. Bohra will be helming the remake of this film about idealism in the face of growing corruption and compromise.
While Mukherjee's film was toplined by Dharmendra as the ideologue who would rather perish than compromise on his ideals, the remake may see the veteran actor's nephew Abhay Deol reprise his memorable role. "There's something very upright about Abhay. He reminds me more of Dharam Paaji than Sunny or Bobby," said Bohra. When contacted, Abhay remained silent on the issue. The remake will go on floors this year.
