Who should play the lead in Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin remake? VOTE!
No matter how much we groan or grumble, remakes and sequels are here to stay.
And so brace yourself for yet another beloved in a new avatar with filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt's remake of his 1991 romantic musical, Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin.
Starring Aamir Khan, Anupam Kher and daughter Pooja, DHKMN revolves around a spoilt heiress who runs away from home to marry a gold-digging film star. En route she's helped by a smart-alecky journalist only to end up falling for him.
The premise, we all know, was previously tackled in Chori Chori starring Raj Kapoor and Nargis, which itself took inspiration from Hollywood's It Happened One Night.
But the goofy chemistry between the first-time paired actors along with Nadeem Shravan's breezy soundtrack hit box-office jackpot.
Bhatt plans to cast nephew Emraan Hashmi in the role of eccentric scribe Raghu Jaitley while the hunt for the actress to play Pooja Dharamchand is still on.
Here's your chance to play casting director with this fun poll. Who do you think is cute enough to fit in Pooja Bhatt's shoes for this role? Your options are:
For all her sizzling Sheila and crazy Chameli moves, Katrina Kaif has proved her adorability quotient in films like Namaste London, Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahani and Mere Brother Ki Dulhan.
After all those snazzy stunts in Ek Tha Tiger and church-hopping in Jab Tak Hai Jaan, it will be a welcome change to see her throw classic 'rayees baap ki bigdi hui aulaad' tantrums on screen.

Initial buzz suggested Pooja Bhatt's intentions to remake her best known movies with kid sister Alia reprising her role and Ranbir Kapoor or Imran Khan for Aamir's part.
The Student of the Year debutant seems ideal (as far as sibling resemblance goes) but it's doubtful she'll be cast opposite her cousin.

Anushka Sharma played quite the maverick daddy's girl in Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola.
In Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin too, Anupam Kher and Pooja share quite a delightful father-daughter rapport.
Perhaps she can bring in some of that zest here?

Peppy, puckish and smug, that's Pooja Dharamchand. That's pretty much Parineeti Chopra too.
Vivacious, starry-eyed, cute-as-a-button characters are a natural fit for the star of Ishaqzaade and Ladies Versus Ricky Bahl.

That bratty quality Swara Bhaskar so easily portrayed as a single mother's possessive daughter in Listen Amaya is just what Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahi needs.
This livewire deserves main, meaty lead roles more than anybody else.

Sonam Kapoor is synonymous with demure, desi roles on screen and fierce fashionista off it.
It wouldn't be so bad to see her in a poor little rich girl avatar after Aisha, right?

Because she plays wealthy like only Bagwati can understand.
Because she's still fresh in our memory after that super cute turn in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.

Only recently Shraddha Kapoor stepped into Anu Aggarwal's shoes for Aashiqui 2.
The film turned out to be a BO smash.
Who knows the Bhatts might want to look no further in the hope of history repeating itself?

The Kai Po Che girl certainly looks tailor-made for the billionaire's scatterbrained, absconding daughter parts.
Or have you still not forgotten (forgiven?) Blood Money?

From Dabangg to Lootera, Sonakshi Sinha is content to be typecast in traditional girl roles.
It would be refreshing to see her get out of the rut and opt for a complete makeover.
