With so many socially relevant films coming, this is another film that can easily be reamade but keeping a current social issue in mind. The film has already been remade in Telugu.
Suggested cast: Shahid Kapoor, who wowed us with his double act in Kaminey, would be the perfect fit as he would take on the good guy-bad guy vibe effortlessly.

It not only had you chuckling but also struck a chord because of an emotional story behind it. This film in Hindi will be a riot if they choose the right kind of trio!
Suggested cast: Akshay Kumar, Abhishek Bachchan and Riteish Deshmukh, who can not only tickle your funny bone but also tug on your hear strings with their performance.
Jilla: The story is about a father-son who initially were goons but soon go through a major reformation after the son forcibly joins the police force. This film will be a classic entertainer in Hindi, more so if they get the right father-son duo.
