The original film follows Ranjeet Chaddha, a middle aged married man who has an extra-marital affair with his secretary Nirmala Deshpande (played by Ranjeeta Kaur). He makes her believe that his wife is terminally ill and they will soon be able to marry after she passes. His lies are eventually exposed after his suspicious wife, played by Vidya Sinha, busts him.
The remake will see Kartik Aaryan, Ananya Pandey and Bhumi Pednekar in the lead roles. Directed by Mudassar Aziz, the film will be bankrolled by T-Series's Bhushan Kumar, and BR Chopra's grandsons Juno Chopra and Abhay Chopra.
Aziz had on 12 February announced the completion of the first schedule and the team would be heading to Uttar Pradesh to resume the shoot.
The casting of the film had fallen into slightly murky grounds when Taapsee Pannu claimed that the producers had unceremoniously dropped her from the project without notifying her of the development. The producers later responded saying they were trying several actresses before finalising anyone for the role, as is the norm.
'I'm very happy that I can carry this legacy forward and even if I get 20 percent of the respect that my father has earned, I would be very happy,' says Ahan Shetty.
Bhediya is presented by Jio Studios and Vijan's Maddock Films.
Produced by Dinesh Vijan, Bhediya will release in cinemas in April 2022
