Speaking to Hindustan Times in a recent interview, the former actress said, “Honestly, I am not a big fan of remakes and feel some things need to be left untouched. There is a lot of pressure on those making and performing it, to be compared constantly with what has been declared a cult film, like Sholay (1975), Don (1978) or Mughal-e-Azam (1960). I have a soft heart for Alia Bhatt, she’s fantastic and portrays innocence through her eyes, and that’s the way I look at Suman.”
Meanwhile, Bhagyashree also said that she would like to see either Ranbir Kapoor or Ranveer Singh step into Salman Khan’s shoes for the character of Prem.
