Himesh Reshammiya has been awfully low-profile these days. Quietly we hear he has negotiated for the remake rights of Shekhar Kapoor's 1983 classic Masoom which starred Naseeruddin Shah and Shabana Azmi
as a couple grappling with the reality of an illegitimate son in the husband's life.
The tearjerker had melted hearts across the nation immediately establishing Shekhar Kapoor as a formidable filmmaking force.
Now 30 years later Himesh Reshamiyya has bought the remake rights of Masoom from the original producers Chanda Dutt and Devi Dutt. The remake would be directed by Bedobrata Pain whose historical drama
Chittagong last year received lavish critical acclaim.
What's more, Himesh has zeroed in on Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan to play the two roles immortalized by Shabana Azmi and Naseeruddin Shah.
According to a very reliable source, Abhishek and Aishwarya have agreed in principle to be in Himesh's remake.
`Now the details are being worked out, ` says the source.
