Jaya Bachchan starrers Mili, Koshish and Bawarchi to be remade: see announcement post inside | Hindi Movie News

Jaya Bachchan, who is making her comeback into movies with Karan Johar’s Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, is all set to relive some of her old movies like Mili, Bawarchi and Koshish. The trio of Anushree Mehta, Abir Sengupta and Sameer Raj Sippy have announced the remake of all these films.
Anushree Mehta, director of Radhika Apte starrer Mrs. Undercover, and Abir Sengupta jointly said in a statement that they are thrilled to be setting upon “this magical journey of making three of our all-time favourite movies in a new form and mold”.
“It is a huge responsibility as Koshish, Bawarchi and Mili are celebrated in India and across the globe. The films have been made by the legendary Gulzar Saab and Hrishi da who have set the standards of filmmaking for generations to come. These are the films we have grown up on and they are the stories that the new generation should also witness; to know our rich cinematic legacy. We endeavour to put our best to live up to the expectations, the responsibility and most importantly remake these films which will touch the audiences hearts far and wide,” the filmmakers said.
Sameer Raj Sippy, grandson of legendary producer NC Sippy and son of Raj Sippy, said the classics will be revisited with a “newer” and modern outlook. He added, “I feel movies are about defining moments, interesting enough to share with people, and that’s why I think it’s time we take classic stories and bring them in today’s scenario, with a newer and modern outlook. And that’s the intention behind revisiting Bawarchi, Mili and Koshish. Coming from a legendary family of filmmakers, and being inspired by the family business, I now want to continue this legacy that has been handed down by my grandfather, NC Sippy, my uncle Romu Sippy and my father Raj Sippy,”
Koshish was directed by Gulzar with Jaya Bachchan and Sanjeev Kumar, while Bawarchi had an ensemble cast with Rajesh Khanna and Jaya Bachchan in the lead. On the other hand, Mili had Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan in the lead and was directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee, who also helmed Bawarchi.
