Sonam Kapoor starrer “Khoobsurat”, a remake of Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s 1980 romantic comedy of the same name, will release September 19 this year. Co-produced by Disney India and Anil Kapoor Film Company, the fun drama will see Sonam in the lead role of Mili, a vivacious girl who turns the lives of a royal family upside down.
“Disney India’s ‘Khoobsurat’, a wholesome family entertainer produced in association with Anil Kapoor Film Company, will release on Sep 19,” said a statement released by Disney India.
Directed by writer and ace ad-filmmaker Shashanka Ghosh, it also stars Fawad Khan, Kirron Kher, Ratna Pathak Shah and Amir Raza Hussain.
Sonam plays the happy-go-lucky girl, beautifully essayed by Rekha in the original, which also starred Rakesh Roshan, Dina Pathak and Ashok Kumar.
Actress Sonam Kapoor, who is stepping into the shoes of Rekha in the ‘Khoobsurat’ remake, says the legendary actress has always been her inspiration throughout her career.
Sonam, 28, made her debut in acting in 2005 with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s romance ‘Saawariyan’. Though the film did not do well at the box-office, it opened doors for the ‘Raanjhanaa’ star in the industry.
In her next outing, the actress would be seen reprising the role of Manju Dayal in Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s 1980 classic.
