Yet another iconic Hindi movie is set for a remake! Well-known filmmaker Abhishek Kapoor, who recently helmed Kedarnath (2018), is gearing up to remake the Amitabh Bachchan starrer cult film Sharaabi (1984).

According to reports, the movie will be a comic drama about a dysfunctional alcoholic. The makers are presently busy locking actors for it. Well, we are eager to know who will play Mr Bachchan’s part in it.
