When Silsila released in 1981, it was an epic moment. No, not because it had some of the best stars of those times in the movie but because of the real life dynamics between these stars. Thirty one years later, this history is set to repeat if Yash Raj Films has its way. There are rumours that Ranbir Kapoor may be roped in to play Amitabh Bachchan’s role while Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif could be the two ladies in the movie.
Now Silsila was huge as in those days Amitabh Bachchan’s supposed closeness to Rekha made for a salacious read. In fact, it was Bachchan who convinced Rekha and Jaya Bachchan to come together for this movie. It was a volatile love story on screen and apparently off too. Many years later, things may not be exactly same, but Ranbir’s liaisons with Deepika and Katrina too filled reams of paper and may be thus perfect for a movie. It has to be seen whether he accepts to do such a movie and also, if like Bachchan, Ranbir manages to bring the two beauties together who are his ‘good-friends’.
Even if Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif do agree to come together for the film since it is a YRF movie, I am sure there will be terms and conditions that these beauties will lay down. I wonder if checking out Katrina’s passport will be one of Deepika’s demands, after all that’s what she wanted to ask her on Koffee With Karan. But if this coup actually takes place, this movie will be even grand than Silsila. So people, stay tuned to know if at all Silsila is getting remade with Deepika, Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina in the cast.
