Remakes of timeless classics like Hrishikesh Mukherjee's 'Mili' and 'Bawarchi' and Gulzar's 'Koshish' will be produced by filmmaker Anushree Mehta in partnership with Abir Sengupta of Jaadugar Films and Sameer Raj Sippy of SRS Productions.
Anushree took to her Instagram and posted a picture with Abir and Raj, and made the announcement regarding the remakes.
Along with the picture, she also shared a statement that read, "We are absolutely thrilled to be setting upon this magical journey of making three of our all-time favourite movies in a new form and mould. It is a tremendous duty since the renowned Gulzar Saab and Hrishi da, who have set the standards of filmmaking for future generations, produced the films Koshish, Bawarchi, and Mili, which are celebrated in India and around the world. These are the movies we watched growing up, and the next generation should see them too to understand our rich cinematic heritage. We endeavour to put our best to live upto the expectations, the responsibility and most importantly remake these films which will touch the audiences hearts far and wide."
Sameer Raj Sippy added, "I feel movies are about defining moments, interesting enough to share with people, and that’s why I think it’s time we take classic stories and bring them in today’s scenario, with a newer and modern outlook. And that’s the intention behind revisiting Bawarchi, Mili and Koshish. Coming from a legendary family of film makers, and being inspired by the family business, I now want to continue this legacy that has been handed down by my grandfather, N. C. Sippy, my uncle Romu Sippy and my father Raj Sippy."
