The sequel of Hrishikesh Mukherjee's classic film Khubsoorat will have Sonam Kapoor play the daughter of Rekha's character.
And who will play Rekha? Kirron Kher!
"When (director) Shashank Ghosh re-wrote Khubsoorat for Sonam Kapoor, it was felt that Rekha’s character from the original film was too outdated to be valid in today’s context. At the same time, Anil Kapoor, a huge fan of Hrishida’s cinema, wanted to retain the original character,” says the source.
The original idea was to rope in Rekha in the remake as well. Unfortunately, the diva turned down the offer to play Sonam's mother.
Now, the part has gone to Kirron Kher.
"Kirronji plays a character named Manju after Rekhaji’s character in Khubsoorat. That’s all I am going to reveal right now,” says Sonam cryptically.
Will Kirron Kher do Rekha justice? VOTE!
