It is the season of remakes and adaptations.From old Hindi songs, particularly 90’s chartbusters finding their way into films of today, this trend in Bollywood has become a formula for gathering hits.
In a recent interaction with media actress Amrita Rao, who played the lead alongside Shahid Kapoor in Ishq Vishk, said that if ever there was to be a remake, she would want Sara Ali Khan to play her role of a simple college-going girl Payal Mehra.
The Ken Ghosh directorial, which also starred Shenaz Treasury, had launched Shahid Kapoor as a lead actor in Bollywood.
When Amrita was asked about Ishq Vishk 2, at fashion designer Sonali Jain’s store launch, she joked, “The way I look right now, I think I can (be) cast opposite Ishaan (Khatter, brother of Shahid) in Ishq Vishk 2! I am just kidding. Who is going to be the next Payal? Let’s rather have a quiz on that.”
She was asked to choose between Sara, Janhvi Kapoor, Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria.
Amrita replied, “Maybe Sara can play Payal and Tara can play Shenaz’s character.”
