It seems that the era of film remakes is still not ever in Bollywood. After Judwaa 2, Varun Dhawan is once again set to take another 90s hit comedy featuring Salman Khan and Karisma Kapoor and make it about him!

According to Indian publications, sources have revealed that Varun has one more ace up his sleeve and this time, he’s pairing with his father in the director’s seat for the remake of 1999 comedy caper, Biwi No. 1.

While the original starred Salman Khan along with Karisma Kapoor and Sushmita Sen in the lead, the latest one is will star Varun in the lead. The leading female actors in the film are yet to be revealed.

“The discussions are presently at a nascent stage. The Dhawans will start work on the film in the coming year. Biwi No.1 is one of Varun’s favourite films and he is excited to collaborate with his father once again,” the source said. “Shooting dates and casting of the leading ladies will begin once the final script is locked.”

The remake will also mark the third collaboration from the father-son duo hit after Main Tera Hero and Judwaa 2.
