If Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan’s Karan-Arjun Were to be Remade Today, Who Would You Cast?
We have some options for the cult reincarnation drama, do you agree with these choices?
The friendship of Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan has grabbed enough headlines over the years and rightly so. After all, they were friends, then turned foes and then became friends again. Some time back, they even made a grand entry a la Karan-Arjun style on a reality show that Salman hosted and on that note; we wonder what if this landmark film of their career was to be remade with younger superstars? Who could do justice to these immortal characters? Here’s our take
RANBIR KAPOOR AND RANVEER SINGH
Just think about the 70s and 80s for a while and the only two actors who had impeccable chemistry were Amitabh Bachchan and Shashi Kapoor. Today, Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh could be the new age Bachchan-Kapoor pair, although they haven’t done a single film together yet. But it’s a given that the day these powerhouses of talents agree to do a film together, it would be a super hit before its release. And come to think of it, what if that film happens to be the remake of Karan Arjun? It is 24-carat gold on paper, isn’t it? We are already planning to watch the first day, first show!
SIDHARTH MALHOTRA AND VARUN DHAWAN
These two young talented boys started their career together and since then have treaded completely different paths. Although they continue to remain good friends with each other, there has been no sign of them doing a film together anytime soon. Thanks to Sidharth’s tall, stern, brooding looks and Varun’s charming, good looks coupled with an enviable physique, they could very well be the best choice for the remake of an old Amitabh-Dharmendra starrer. But if a director decides to cast them as rival brothers in Karan-Arjun, they would make for one hell of a bhai-bhai pair on screen.
ARJUN KAPOOR AND RANVEER SINGH
They took the industry and the audience by storm with their impeccable macho chemistry in Yash Raj Film’s Gunday. Being the talented actors that they are, Ranveer and Arjun brilliantly portrayed the complexities of a friendship gone sour and hence, we feel they would do complete justice if they both are cast in the
remake of Karan Arjun. Yes we know about your choices guys, Arjun as Karan and Ranveer as Arjun, right?
RANBIR KAPOOR AND VARUN DHAWAN
Interestingly, none of the younger lot of actors have worked with Ranbir Kapoor yet. Maybe they know that Ranbir has stupendous potential to shine through and effortlessly overshadow whoever he works with. But all said and done, if Karan Arjun was to be remade today, then these two extremely good looking and versatile actors, with strikingly different personalities would be a fantastic choice to play the lead roles in Salman-SRK starrer. It would be interesting to see them play off each other.
