Just another day, just another news of Bollywood cashing in on nostalgia. According to a report by Filmfare, actors Ranveer Singh and Varun Dhawan are partnering up for the remake/sequel of 1994 cult classic comedy film Andaz Apna Apna.
However, this remake announcement has the internet divided (no surprise); while some are actually cheering for a modern take on Salman-Aamir’s film, but most of the people are just screaming nooooooo and begging Bollywood to STOP. RUINING. THE. CLASSICS. Few people have so much as tagged the Mumbai Police handle to report it as a mental harassment.
A quick look at social media will tell you just how much people hate this idea of a remake starring Ranveer and Varun.
Fuck you. Fuck bollywood. Fuck the whole fucken universe for fucken destroying gems tum sab ki ma ka bhosda madarchodon. https://t.co/jHO7kxpI4a

An insider source spoke to Pinkvilla, “The producers Vinay and Priti Sinha are planning to do Andaz Apna Apna – it won’t be a sequel or remake. Nor will Raj Kumar Santoshi direct it. While they have not decided yet what exactly it will be, they are sure it won’t be a remake or sequel but something as exciting. Raj Kumar Santoshi’s Andaz Apna Apna, starring Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Raveena Tandon and Karisma Kapoor, was a cult movie and one cannot mess with the original. One should not touch such a great film and that too 25 years later and destroy it by a remake or sequel. The director is yet to be finalised.”
The movie is still in its very initial stage and looking at the outrage, they might just cancel it. (or definitely make it because whoever said no to cashing in on internet outrage)
