Imtiaz Ali’s blockbuster Love Aaj Kal will soon have its Telugu remake. And to play Rishi Kapoor’s role of the sprightly old sardarji, Paresh Rawal will be stepping in.

Directed by Jayanth Paranji, who also made Munnabhai MBBS in Telegu, the film will have Pawan Kalyan playing Saif Ali Khan’s role and Ileana D’cruz playing Deepika Padukone’s.

Jayanth who has done two Telugu films with Paresh Rawal confesses that he couldn’t imagine anyone else in the role. “Paresh is an incredible artiste. This is a small part but I knew he will bring in a lot,” says the director.

The plot of the film however will undergo a few changes.

The director admits that though the essence of the story will be the same, the film will be a different take on Love Aaj Kal.

Unlike LAK, in which Rishi Kapoor narrates the story of his younger days, Paresh will tell the story of a friend of his.

Did Jayanth discuss these changes with Imtiaz? “No. In fact, I have never met him.”
