Old, new 'Chashme Buddoor' together will create curiosity: Dhawan

Mumbai, April 5 (IANS) David Dhawan's "Chashme Buddoor" remake released Friday alongside the digitally restored version of the original, but the filmmaker is unfazed by the competition. He believes the simultaneous release would create curiosity among the audiences.

"It's a good thing. Enjoy it in a good spirit, it's a new thing. It's like a director's special and has been released that way, not a big release so it's OK. At least it will create curiosity among the public. Publicity helps in the long run," the 52-year-old said here Thursday at the premiere of his film.

It is said that for the first time, the restored version of an original film has released with its remake.

Siddharth, who plays one of the three friends in Dhawan's "Chashme Baddoor", said: "If young generation goes and watch the old film because of our film, then it's a good thing. It's like if people go back and enjoy Sunil Gavaskar's batting because of Virat Kohli, it's a good thing."

Siddharth further adds that their film is different from Sai Paranjpye directed buddy-comedy.

"This is a very new film, it has not been made by watching the old film. It is wrong to say so. If you would see the film, you would not say (that they are the same). If it was not named 'Chashme Baddoor', then also it would have worked. It is a different film by David Dhawan. It's a David Dhawan bromance-comedy," said the "Rang De Basanti" fame actor.

While the original "Chashme Buddoor" starred Deepti Naval, Farooque Sheikh, Rakesh Bedi and Ravi Baswani, the remake cast also includes Ali Zafar, Divyendu Sharma, Taapsee Pannu, Rishi Kapoor and Anupam Kher.
