Rajshri Productions of the Barjatyas has always tried to bank upon their successful older stories. Be it remaking Jaya Bachchan starrer Uphaar into Abodh -Madhuri Dixit’s Debut movie; Nadiya Ke Paar into the opulent Hum Aapke Hain Kaun, or Chitchor into Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon, the Barjatya’s have always recreated the old magic and it has paid off quite well most of the times.
Not just remakes, Rajshris have also tried their hit themes again and again. After the grandiose affair Hum Aapke Hain Kaun, came the opulent Hum Saath Saath hain & after Vivah came Ek Vivah Aisa Bhi.
This time around the story is a bit different. The Rajshri Production has roped in the pair of their 1978 Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se, actor – Director Sachin Pilgaonkar & Ranjeeta Kaur to make a sequel to the same movie. Titled Jaana Pehchaana, the movie showcases Arun(Sachin’s character) life after Lily’s(Ranjeeta’s) Death and takes the story forward from where Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se ended. The film is set to release for September release at Liberty Cinema, Mumbai on September 16th, 2011.
While Sachin plays his old character Arun, Ranjeeta plays a lookalike of her old character Lily. Junior Mehmood and Birbal will also be seen as supporting cast playing the same roles as in the earlier film.
After disasters like Uuf Kya Jadoo Mohabbat Hai, Ek Vivah Aisa Bhi, Isi Life Mein, and Love U…Mr. Kalakaar!, they surely need a blockbuster. Hope the movie does great business for Rajshri Productions & brings the same success as its prequel.
