Yash Raj Films is making the film Aurangzeb which is a remake of their 1978 film Trishul. But, the story has been tweaked and Arjun Kapoor plays a double role. He plays both the characters played by Amitabh Bachchan and Shashi Kapoor.
Jackie Shroff plays Sanjeev Kumar’s part of a tycoon but in Aurangzeb, his wife leaves him, taking one of the twins with her. He grows up, bearing resentment toward his father and the business empire, as Bachchan’s character did in Trishul. The other twin, also portrayed by Arjun Kapoor, looks after the business along with his father, similar to Shashi Kapoor’s character in the original.
However, the mother figure, played by Waheeda Rehman in Trishul, remains central to the dramatic conflict in Aurangzeb. Most probably, Amrita Singh is likely to play the role of mother.
