Alia Bhatt Wants a War Remake With An All Female-Cast
Alia Bhatt responded to a tweet by film critic Anupama Chopra suggested a remake of War with an all female-cast instead of males
In a short span of time, Bollywood star Alia Bhatt has already left a huge mark in the industry. Making her debut with Karan Johar’s Student of the Year back in 2012, the starlet has proved her mettle as an actress. Her acting in Highway, Udta Punjab and Raazi was lauded by many, putting her in the list of one of the finest performers of Bollywood. She’s currently gearing up for the release of Brahmastra opposite beau Ranbir Kapoor and also working on Baahubali director’s RRR. Alia also has Sadak 2, Inshaallah and Takht lined up, along with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai. But with the release of the much-anticipated War, the actress wishes for a remake with female stars instead of male ones.
Can someone make a #War for women – a gorgeous, clever popcorn thriller with staggeringly good looking people walking in slow motion. I think @deepikapadukone @aliaa08 #SaraAliKhan would be a hell of a trio for a desi #CharliesAngels Any takers?— Anupama Chopra (@anupamachopra) October 4, 2019
Film critic Anupama Chopra shared the idea of making a female version of the film - something along the lines of Hollywood's hit franchise, Charlie's Angels. She wrote, "Can someone make a War for women – a gorgeous, clever popcorn thriller with staggeringly good looking people walking in slow motion. I think Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt and Sara Ali Khan would be a hell of trio for a desi Charlie's Angels. Any takers?" Alia soon responded to Anupama's tweet with, "Aye aye."
With Anupama's suggestion, many users on Twitter shared their excitement for an all female-cast film. One suggested that superstar Shah Rukh Khan could play Charlie in the remake, while another suggested a female version of Dil Chahta Hai - starring Alia, Parineeti Chopra and Shraddha Kapoor. Will it be as big a success than the originals were? One will have to wait and find out! For the time being, War has made history by becoming the highest Bollywood opener ever, beating Thugs of Hindostan at the domestic box office. Directed by Siddharth Anand, the film boasts of some gravity-defying action scenes and thrilling chase sequences.
