Filmmaker Umesh Shukla has roped in actor Paresh Rawal to step into Om Prakash's shoes for the new version of the cult classic "Chupke Chupke".

"So far we have only finalised Paresh Rawal, who will play Om Prakash's role," Shukla, who had directed "Oh My God" with Paresh in the lead role, told IANS.

"Needless to say Pareshji is a wonderful actor and I share a good bonding with him. It will be fun to work with him again," he added.

The 1975 Hrishikesh Mukherjee-directed light-hearted drama "Chupke Chupke" saw stellar performances by the likes of Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra, Sharmila Tagore, Jaya Bhaduri, Om Prakash and Asrani. And who can forget Dharmendra's antics in the film!

"We have made many changes in the script and it's not a remake it is an adaptation of 'Chupke Chupke'," said Shukla.

The rest of the cast is yet to be decided.

"Writer Sajid and Farhad have written the script and the film is in its final draft stage. It's a fun-filled film. Once we finish the script, we will finalise the other actors as well," he said.
