Shah Rukh Khan to step into Amitabh Bachchan’s shoes in Hum remake?

Rohit Shetty’s next project with Happy New Year actor is rumoured to be in a remake of Big B’s Hum

While the news of Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol reuniting in a Rohit Shetty film has been making headlines, we have a latest scoop about the aforementioned film. Rumour has it that hitmaker Rohit Shetty is planning to reboot Amitabh Bachchan’s 1991 blockbuster Hum with Shah Rukh and Kajol in the lead roles.

A little birdie chirped to us that King Khan will be playing Big B’s character as the eldest brother in the remake. A source close to the director said, “Rohit’s next film, starring SRK, will be a remake of the ’90s hit film, Hum and currently, things are being finalised for the same.”

“For Govinda and Rajinikanth’s characters, Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra are being considered but nothing has been finalised yet. Rohit is still working on the film’s script and Kajol will also be a part of this film,” added the source. It is being said that Singham Returns director is making a few changes to the original to accommodate Kajol’s character in the film.

If you jog your memory a little, there were rumours about a month ago that Chennai Express filmmaker was rebooting Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi with Shah Rukh, Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra. If the sources are to be believed, then it looks like Hum has ousted Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi in flooring Rohit Shetty, prompting him to remake the old hit.
