Waheeda Rehman Believes Sonam Kapoor Or Vidya Balan Will Fit In Her Pyaasa’s Role
Versatile actor Aamir Khan few days back revealed his interest to make the remake of 1957 classic Pyaasa but veteran actress Waheeda Rehman who starred in the movie feels that some classics lose its charm when remade.
However, Waheeda also added that if the blockbuster flick is remade then Sonam Kapoor or Vidya Balan will fit in her role.
The actress quoted, "It shouldn`t be made. I don`t have right to stop people. If it`s made, then my role should be done either by Sonam Kapoor or Vidya Balan."
The 74-year old actress also said that few classics are meant only for black & white cinema and its remake can destroy its charm and drama.
"Classics shouldn`t be remade because if you make the remake of such films, comparisons are inevitable. The new version might be better, but the impact of the original version is difficult to replace from the mind of artistes and audience of our generations," she said.
"Some films look better in black and white only. The coloured version can`t retain the same drama or impact of many black and white films made in our time. If `Kaagaz Ke Phool` is remade in colour, it would be a disaster. It goes same for films like `Pyaasa`, `Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam` or Nutan`s `Sujata`," she added.
Meanwhile, Rehman who was also known for her dancing skills in 1950’s feels that today’s choreographers doesn’t have anything new to offer to its audience.
"Due respect to the artistes and the choreographer, because it`s today`s trend, there are more item numbers. In our time the songs were the part of the story. That`s what I feel. I don`t find much varied choreography in today`s films," said Rehman.
