Rishi, Boman, Naseer get shaukeen

Hrithik Roshan, Abhay Deol and Farhan Akhtar made the boys road-trip adventure popular in Zoya Akhtar's Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. 

But much before these relatively younger actors made road trips seem fun, Ashok Kumar, A K Hangal and Utpal Dutt made the adventurous road journey famous in Basu Chatterjee's Shaukeen. 

Now Rishi Kapoor, Boman Irani and Naseeruddin Shah are ready to fill in for the three veteran actors for Rohit Roy's remake of the 1982 classic. 

A source informed Mumbai Mirror that for the remake of Shaukeen, Roy has envisioned a film along the lines of ZNMD that will appeal to older men. And so, the original film's script about three old men with a roving eye will be altered for the remake. 

When contacted, Rishi Kapoor confirmed, "Yes, I've agreed to do this project. It is being directed by Ronit's brother Rohit. I chase Ronit in Student Of The Year and Rohit has been chasing me for this film. I've finally said yes. 

Boman, Naseer and I play three 60-plus men not only chasing girls, but also having a good time in life before we part ways." 

With regard to the script, Rishi said, "In this day and age, Shaukeen wouldn't work. It's less Shaukeen now and more Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. It's the story of three senior guys out to do the things they never dared to before."
