After months of waiting, Ali Zafar’s fans are in for a treat. The much anticipated remake of the Sai Paranjpe’s 1981 classic, Chashme Buddoor, in which Ali Zafar plays Farooque Shaikh’s character, is coming to cinemas on 5th April, 2013.
To sate the eager fans the studios have not only released the promo poster with Ali smack in the center, but also the official trailer. Since it is common knowledge that lately whatever Ali has touched in Bollywood turns to gold, film gurus are already predicting a hit. This would be Ali Zafar’s fourth Bollywood film where he has already garnered huge international fame for his performance in hits like Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and London Paris New York.
When asked to comment upon the project Ali said, “When I saw the original Chashme Buddoor, I knew that the plot must retain its authenticity. Also, while it must have been a challenge to render it into modern times and aesthetics, David sir has done a brilliant job. It’s a family entertainer. I think we are all excited about it.”
As remakes go, Bollywood couldn’t have picked a more popular film to modernize, but with Ali Zafar in the lead role they couldn’t have been more spot-on with the casting. Ali who has mesmerized us with his musical talent and low-key art exhibits which he often auctions for charity, continues to test the boundaries of the entertainment industry and continues to impress us with his range.
With two more films already in the pipeline, there is no doubt that 2013 will be an eventful year for Pakistan’s Golden Boy, Ali Zafar.
