"It's a good thing. Enjoy it in a good spirit, it's a new thing.
It's like a director's special and has been released that way, not
a big release so it's OK. At least it will create curiosity among
the public. Publicity helps in the long run," the 52-year-old said
here on Thursday at the premiere of his film.
It is said that for the first time, the restored version of an
original film has released with its remake.
Siddharth, who plays one of the three friends in Dhawan's
Chashme Baddoor, said, "If young generation goes and watch
the old film because of our film, then it's a good thing. It's like
if people go back and enjoy Sunil Gavaskar's batting because of
Virat Kohli, it's a good thing."
Siddharth further adds that their film is different from Sai
Paranjpye directed buddy-comedy.
"This is a very new film, it has not been made by watching the
old film. It is wrong to say so. If you would see the film, you
would not say (that they are the same). If it was not named
Chashme Baddoor, then also it would have worked. It is a
different film by David Dhawan. It's a David Dhawan
bromance-comedy," said the Rang De Basanti fame
While the original Chashme Baddoor starred Deepti Naval, Farooq Sheikh, Rakesh Bedi and Ravi Baswani, the remake cast also includes Ali Zafar, Divyendu Sharma, Taapsee Pannu, Rishi Kapoor and Anupam Kher.
