Mumbai, May 21 IANS | 5 months ago

Director Sajid Khan says that contrary to reports, his film "Humshakals" is not a remake of the 1982 classic "Angoor".


"Initially, when I talked about the film two years back, news spread that it is a remake of 'Angoor'. But it is not," Sajid said here Tuesday at the music launch of the film.

"I made one remake and I have sworn not to make another one," he added referring to the debacle of "Himmatwala", a remake of the 1983 Jeetendra starrer.

Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukh and Ram Kapoor will be seen in triple roles in "Humshakals" and Sajid, who hosted talk show "Sajid's Superstars" on the small screen, says his stint on TV helped him etch out certain characters for the film.

"I had this idea for quite some time. Some second and third characters played by the three actors in the film are similar to things I have done on TV. So I was at ease writing them," he said.

"I wanted to make a new kind of comedy everyone enjoys and is not vulgar," he added.

Releasing June 20, the fun-filled drama will also see Esha Gupta, Bipasha Basu and Tamannah as the female leads.
