Will Bhatts and Emraan remake AWARAPAN?

Joginder Tuteja, Glamsham Editorial

First Look of JANNAT 2 has managed to create a good impression for itself and Bhatts are gung ho about the fact that with the film they would be able to deliver their winning streak with Emraan Hashmi. While the film indeed seems promising and could well result in yet another success for this combination, the film that has stayed close to the heart of everyone associated with it is AWARAPAN. The fact remains that the Emraan Hashmi starrer stays on to be one of the most honourable flops made by Bhatts and is seeing a loyal audience till date.

Mukesh Bhatt nods his head in agreement, "Yes, I get so many phone calls till date which are in appreciation of the film. I am continuously being asked to either re-release it or make its sequel."

On the other hand their favourite blue eyed boy Mohit Suri delivered his first ever commercial and critical dud in the form of CROOK before MURDER 2 managed to redeem him. However there is good introspection gone into the failure of CROOK as well that led to some lessons learnt.

"CROOK went wrong because of its climax. When we were talking about racism in Australia, we should have had the villain being an Australian. In our film he turned out to be an Indian (played by Arjan Bajwa). We went wrong in sheer characterisation and that was disappointing for many out there," adds Bhatt in a matter of fact tone.

As for AWARAPAN (which was incidentally also the costliest film ever made by them then), Bhatts are candid enough to admit that they took a wrong decision to pitch the film alongside Himesh Reshammiya's AAP KAA SURROOR and Deols' APNE.

Bhatt says, "AWARAPAN was a clear case of a wrong release. It was a very good film but then too many films came on the same date. I have learnt a lesson to never release a film in a clutter. Isme koyi ego waali baat nahi hai. One must think as a businessman as well," he says, "As for the film's remake, there hasn't been any decision yet. When there is so much in our platter to tell original stories, why go back in the past?"
