Akshay Kumar, Nargis in Shaukeen remake

Shaukeen, the 1980 Basu Chatterjee comic film about three old men lusting after a girl next-door, is all set to be remade by Rumi Jaffery. Interestingly, Akshay Kumar has been roped in to play the character of Mithun Chakraborty. While the female lead originally played by Rati Agnihotri will be essayed by Nargis Fakhri.

Though in the original, Mithun’s part was a small role, the remake will apparently change the part to fit in Akshay. Further reports suggest that Akshay has not charged his usual fee for this film as it is not a full length role, but he will have a stake in the film.

While on the other hand, as reported earlier by Bollywood Hungama, the three older actor’s roles have gone to Anupam Kher, Annu Kapoor and Paresh Rawal.

  1. Yaiy– finally nargis fakhri gets another film!! Perhaps my rants here helped…

    Isn’t it the three oldies who do(or don’t!!) here …


  2. yo sanju–good idea hehe though shes now past her prime a bit.
    but u deserve a ‘prize’ for this suggestion–remember u are one of my ‘assistants’/’secretarys’ as in the previous spoofs!
    ps-Lets come to one side for a ‘brief break’ aka ‘coffee’ πŸ˜‰


  3. as for imran–we are talking bout ‘men’ here, not ‘pussies’ or ‘sissies’.
    And anyhow, imran fan amy has opted for the H..
    ps–btw satyams role as utpal dutt is certain. As for the other two blog uncles utkal & rajen .. they should b around (& willing)
    gimme a high 5 !! πŸ™‚


  4. dont care if its akshay or any other tom, ‘dick’ n harry….

    btw sanju- while we are on the coffee..some gossip from the H!!
    your friend oldgold & also anu have joined Amy in my H!
    While Anu does blog off & on , the other two are ‘enjoying’ bondage & total submission–and are ‘cut off’ from the big bad world


    • and you seem to be very bored in whatever mental institution you are spending time in. those ’50 shades of bs’ fantasies sound silly.


      • Umm wow Ana/u–with that clairvoyance who needs snail/email etc lol. Mentioned ‘secretary’ the other day-was sent a PDF link of 50shadesGrey. Told her I don’t read esp girly stuff–but after reading bits–it’s crap & not even literature but can now ‘make out’ why….
        Ps: now awaiting the movie FSG–once they fight over the casting!
        Try it ana (and sanju-dya wanna join the ‘cult’
        & yeah cheer up -my turn to be ‘submissive’ πŸ˜‰


  5. Sad news..another one bites the dust..RIP Basu Chatterjee..There is just no hope for this parasitic Hi-fi…


    • why blame the hi-fi? as long as there is audience dying to see nargis fakhri in shaukeen (a film they probably know nothing about) remake, this will go on. better to just steer clear of hindi films now


  6. Seems sense has prevailed & she is thinkng above moolah now..
