Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro 2 in the pipeline!

If you have watched Kundun Shah's 1983 classic, Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro, you probably loved it. But there are quite a few who haven't watched the laugh riot black comedy yet.

Now, according to the latest buzz going around in B-Town, Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro team is coming together to remake it!

Naseeruddin Shah & Om Puri has been signed on already, and now, the process of wooing Ravi Vaswani - as well as the rest of the original cast - is on.

Kundun Shah
will direct the new film as well and Sajid Nadiadwala would produce the sequel.

Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro originally starred Naseer, Vaswani, Satish Shah, Om Puri, Pankaj Kapur, Neena Gupta, Satish Kaushik and the late actress Bhakti Barve.

The film completes 25 years this August 12, and Nadiadwala plans to launch the new film around the same time this year.

Stay tuned in!

It is National award winning type movie..

@vEENs - Lets hope, they make a decent remake this time!

Yup, I also liked Halla Bol (specially the part after intermission) and the role played by Pankaj Kapoor was superb!

Take care :o)

@KP - Do me a favor buddy....just rent a DVD for the original and watch it.

I'm sure, you would buy the DVD after watching this comical masterpiece!

I can't say, how well the remake would take shape, however, I would recommend making this movie a part of your personal DVD collection.

Thanks for dropping by, KP :o)

Take care!
