Feroz Khan's "Kurbani"

The next remake on the anvil is Feroz Khan's "Kurbani". This is a remake of his own previous film by the same name Qurbani. Please note the difference in spelling as Q had to give way for K. You may call it the effect of numerology on today's film-makers.

The previous Qurbani was released in the year 1980 was a big hit and now has become a cult film. The movie had Feroz Khan, Vinod Khanna, Zeenat Aman and Amjad Khan in leading roles. The music by Kalyanji Anandji was a huge hit with Laila O Laila and Hum Tumhe Chahte Hai Aise being chart busters. The movie had the style and flamboyance of Feroz Khan written all over it.

So far, Fardeen Khan has been finalised to play Feroz Khan's role for the remake. Saif Ali Khan was rumoured to be a part of the cast but that seems to have not worked out. It would be interesting to see how Feroz Khan remakes his own classic!

Other actors who will be seen in the remake will be Feroz Khan (doing Amjad Khan's role) and Jackie Shroff (doing Amrish Puri's role). The music for the remake is being composed by Anand Raaj Anand.
