Abhishek Bachchan is likely to reprise the role of Nana Patekar in the remake of 1992 film Angaar which was directed by Shashilal Nair. It is reported that AB Corp of Amitabh Bachchan is in the process of buying the remake rights.
Angaar which also featured Jackie Shroff and Dimple Kapadia was a gritty drama based on the underworld and was considered a dark film. It did not do well at the box office, but with the success of Ram Gopal Varma’s Sarkar and Sarkar Raj, it is being felt that the Angaar remake will be received well by today’s audience.
The details who will rewrite the script and its director will be known once the remake deal is inked.
