Are Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra the perfect choice to play Asha Parekh onscreen?

Veteran actor Asha Parekh feels that these leading beauties of B-town are the ones who can reprise her roles in remakes

While most veteran actors don’t like the idea of their films being remade, Asha Parekh is not only cool with the idea of remakes but also has some suggestions. The yesteryear star who delivered memorable films like Teesri Manzil, Main Tulsi Tere Aangan Ki, Kati Patang and many more films feels that Deepika Padukone is apt to step into her shoes. At her recent interaction with the media, Asha Parekh said that if Mera Gaon Mera Desh was to be remade, she would like DP to play her role in the film. She also added, “I think Deepika is a fantastic actor.” Well, looks like the leggy lass as the desi Leela in Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela has not only impressed the audiences, her colleagues and contemporaries but also legendary actors like Amitabh Bachchan and now, Asha Parekha. We’d like to add that we agree with her that DP will do complete justice to a film like Mera Gaon Mera Desh.

That’s not all! On being asked, which of her hit numbers Asha would like to see remade, she said that she would like Aaja aaja main hoon pyaar tera from Teesri Manzil remade and added, “I would love to see Priyanka Chopra dancing to that song.” Ah-ha! Looks like it’s not only the Leela from Ram-Leela who has impressed the veteran actor but also the item girl, hai na?

So BollywoodLifers, would you agree with Asha Parekh on her choice of actors for the remake of her films and songs?
