Did you know Akshay Kumar is the reason behind Pati Patni Aur Wohs remake?

Kartik Aaryan, Bhumi Pednekar and Ananya Panday have impressed the audience with the hilarious trailer of Pati Patni Aur Woh and have also wowed the audience with their moves in Dheeme Dheeme. Produced by Juno Chopra and Bhushan Kumar, Pati Pati Aur Woh is the remake of late BR Chopra’s 1978 classic, which starred Sanjeev Kumar, Vidya Sinha and Ranjeeta Kaur. With the film being surrounded by a good buzz currently, we thought we’d give you a little insight into who suggested the idea of making the remake.

In an exclusive chat with Filmfare, producer Juno Chopra revealed, “The idea to remake the film was suggested by Akshay Kumar. He had come home to meet us one day. That’s when he asked us why we were not remaking Pati Patni Aur Woh, which was made under our own banner.” When we asked him that was Akshay his first choice for the film? Juno replied, “No, we never thought of him casting in the film. Kartik was our first choice always.”

Directed by Mudassar Aziz, Pati Patni Aur Woh is scheduled to release on December 6.
