Irrfan Khan wants HAASIL to be remade

Riding high on the Oscar win for LIFE OF PIE and anticipating a good success of SAHEB BIWI AUR GANGSTER RETURNS, Irrfan Khan is going through some exciting times. Even though rumours may be flying thick around him unable to do his thick buddy Tigmanshu Dhulia's BULLET RAJA owing to date issues and a replacement being sought by the director, Irrfan wants his PAAN SINGH TOMAR director's film HAASIL to be remade.

"HAASIL (2003) is the film that first brought Irrfan and Tigmanshu together. It was the filmmaker's first outing while Irrfan too was not as big a name then as he is today. On its release, the film hadn't done well commercially. However over the decade gone by, it has found a cult following for itself on home video and satellite circuits. Since it is widely acknowledged as one of the best student politics film since Ram Gopal Varma's SHIVA, there has been widespread interest amongst quite a few filmmakers to bring back the script in a revised format. Irrfan too feels that it is high time that the film is revisited," informs a source.

Given the fact that the director-actor 'jodi' has been known to deliver goods and their last film together, PAAN SINGH TOMAR, missed entering the Oscars race by just a whisker (hence depriving Irrfan a unique feat to see two of his films in the race for an Oscar win), the suggestion to remake HAASIL is being taken a lot more seriously.

Admits Irrfan, "Yes, HAASIL is one film that I want to be remade. Back then when the film had released, not many multiplexes were there and audience was not really enjoying films in theatres. I am pretty sure that if today's generation watches HAASIL, it will get what it deserves. It would be unique entertainment for them and the film's content would also finally get what it truly deserves."

One wonders that considering Jimmy Shergill's 'still youthful looks' would make him enact the part of a college student or would someone from the younger generation step in.
