Old 'Chashme Buddoor' never died down: Deepti Naval

Mumbai, March 29 (IANS) Veteran actress Deepti Naval, who is all set to release the digitally restored version of the original "Chashme Buddoor", has never felt that the film faded away from the viewers' mind.

"I feel that the old 'Chashme Buddoor' never died down. People have gone on watching it as it's repeatedly shown on TV. It never died out," she said at the launch of the promo of the restored film here Friday.

Excited to see the fresh print, she said: "It is rare that a film gets restored. It has brought all of us together once again."

Directed by Sai Paranjpye, the 1981 buddy film also had Farooque Shaikh, Rakesh Bedi and Ravi Baswani, among others.

Talking about her memories of shooting the film, she said she never felt they were "shooting" or "acting".

"I just remembered that we used to have fun... we were in such a comfort zone with each other. I didn't even know the ABC of acting at that time. But no one made me feel that I was just one-film-old," she added.

The old version will hit screens April 5 along with its remake, which has been directed by David Dhawan and stars Ali Zafar, Siddharth, Taapsee Pannu, and Divyendu Sharma.

Talking about Paranjpye's disapproval of Dhawan's remake, Naval said it is important to respect her feelings.

"I want to respect her feelings... she is concerned how her film will be remade. But I feel that the fact that David saab wants to make the film again is a compliment," she said.

Rakesh Bedi, who was also at the event, feels that the remake will lack the simplicity of the original.

"The simplicity won't be there. The innocence and that atmosphere will be missed. But I guess this is the requirement of today," he said.

Farooque Shaikh says people are often tempted to revisit something that is popular.

"We will only get to know what David Dhawan has made when we see it. But if something is popular, then to repeat it is a temptation. Also, if you have a readymade plot, you don't need to put much effort," he said.
