Now this one is quite some twist in the tale even as the release of Karzzzz is less than 50 days away. In what is possibly nothing less than a shocking revelation, the news has just come in that Himesh Reshammiya's upcoming film Karzzzz has seen a change in plot when compared to the Rishi Kapoor original. In the Subhash Ghai classic, Raj Kiran was shown to be in love with Simi Garewal and was born as Rishi Kapoor in his next birth, only to fall in love with Tina Munim and then take revenge from Simi.
However, in the upcoming remake, the twist in the tale is brought about by the character who plays Himesh's love interest. That's because here, Tina (played by debutant Shweta Kumar) turns out to be none other than Kamini's (Urmila Matondkar) foster daughter.
Confirms a source, ''In Karzzzz, there were certain elements which had to be made a little differently. So there is this situation where Himesh is in love with a girl who is his tormentor's daughter. Even though Tina isn't Kamini's biological daughter, Monty here still is in love (albeit in his new 'janam') with the daughter of the wife of his previous 'janam'. Quite a 'janam janam' situation here which is bound to create dilemmatic situation!''
However rest of the plot has been left untouched. It is the same Sir Juda (Gulshan Grover) who has an evil eye on Ravi Varma's [Raj Kiran] mansion, the same Kabeera (Danny Denzongpa) who helps Monty in unearthing his past and the same mother-daughter pair who form the thread which ties the two 'janams' together.
Also starring Rohini Hattangadi, Bakhtiyaar Irani, Raj Babbar, Asrani and Dino Morea in principal roles, Karzzzz is confirmed for a 17th October release.
