One should not tamper with an old classic says Vidya Balan

Vastavam web: The trend of remakes in Bollywood may be on the rise but actor Vidya Balan believes one should not tamper with an old classic.There were reports that Vidya was offered to play Sridevi’s role in a remake of “Sadma”.”As I feel one should not touch a film like ‘Sadma’, why tamper with it? These are timeless films. One can reinterpret it but I am not one of those who would go for it,” the actor told PTI on the sidelines of Jio MAMI Movie Mela event here.
Vidya said Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s “Anand”, Ramesh Sippy’s “Sholay”, Mahesh Bhatt’s “Arth” and Shekhar Kapur’s “Mr India” were her favourite films during a conversation with film critics Anupama Chopra and Rajeev Masand.The film was earlier slated to release on December 1 but the makers shifted the date to avoid a clash with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus, “Padmavati”. “Tumhari Sulu” will now release on November 24.”I think everyone’s dates have changed now, I have not kept a track. All I know is ‘Padmavati’ is coming on December 1. We got a clear date so we jumped at it.
