As we reported yesterday, Jackky Bhagnani is gearing up to remake the 2001 film Rehnaa Hai Tere Dil Mein, which has attained cult status over the years. While the original starred R Madhavan, Dia Mirza and Saif Ali Khan in primary roles, the makers are yet to announce the final cast for the remake.
However, if fresh reports are to be believed, Kriti Sanon and Vicky Kaushal have given their nods to the film and their paper work is expected to be over soon. The team is looking at beginning production by the end of 2022.
