Remaking old classics is a risky business, but comedy king David Dhawan is going ahead in any case. The director with the funny bone is all set to remake Sai Paranjpye’s 1981 cult comedy Chashme Buddoor, and one of the original film’s leads believes Dhawan will succeed only if he comes up with a brilliant script.

Veteran actor Farooque Sheikh, who played one of the three students around whom the story revolved, says the original film’s success was a result of Paranjpye’s excellent effort as a writer.

“In Chashme Buddoor the best work was of Sai Paranjpye. She wrote such a good script and (also) successfully extracted that out of us on screen as well. The film was 80 percent Sai Paranjpye’s efforts,” said Farooque, who romances Deepti Naval in the original.

“Now, if David Dhawan can get something equally good with the remake, the film will turn out to be really good.”
