Tusshar Kapoor will be seen copying one of his father's famous dance sequences for 'Char Din Ki Chandni'.
The movie has been primarily shot in Rajasthan and Amritsar.
After the Deols, director Samir Karnik seems to have now moved on to Sridevi. (MidDAY)
His new under-production film 'Chaar Din Ki Chandni', which is currently being shot in Jodhpur, is an out-and-out tribute to the enduring charm of the actress. (MidDAY)
Karnik has also acquired the rights of the track 'Chandni Oh Meri Chandni' from the 1989 Sridevi- starrer.
While the actress herself sang the original track, the director wants to re-record the tune in another voice for his film.
Says the film's music director Abhishek Ray, "One can't tamper with an iconic song that is synonymous with Sridevi's beauty and stardom."
Classical maestros Shiv-Hari composed Chandni "Oh Meri Chandni, so there isn't much I'd like to do to change the flavour. It will remain a duet, but yes, my version will be sung by two different singers," he added.
While Karnik remained unavailable for comment, Om Puri (who plays Randhawa's father in the film) says, "An old fort in Jodhpur has been turned into our hotel and also the shooting venue."
"All of us from actors to technicians are staying together at this fort. It's a unique way of shooting for a film because no time is wasted, " he said.
'Chaar Din Ki Chandni' true to its title is a Comedy with the essence of romance, set against the backdrop of Rajasthan at a four-day wedding.
A complete family entertainer revolves around a Rajput family and a family from Punjab, who are caught in a situation to create the comedy of errors.
In words to say both are SINGHS but who is the real KING.
It's the season of actresses making a comeback. After Raveena Tandon in 'Buddha%u2026Hoga Tera Baap' and Karisma Kapoor, who is returning with 'Dangerous Ishq', it is Anita Raj who is retuning with Samir Karnik's 'Char Din Ki Chandni'.
"Yes, I will be seen again this January after a long gap. My movie 'Char Din Ki Chandni' is releasing. Where had I disappeared? Nowhere! I was right here. Role bhi to honi chahiye (There should be roles for me)," said Anita, who will be seen as a Maharani in the film.
The pretty and vivacious Anita made a splash in the 1980s when she did a series of successful potboilers specially with Sanjay Dutt and Dharmendra. Some of her hits are 'Naukar Biwi Ka', 'Jeene Nahin Doonga', 'Iljaam', 'Karishma Kudrat Ka' and 'Ghulami'.
She says she had no craving for arclights unless the offer was worth her while.
"I did make a return to movies in 2007 in a film called 'Thodi Life Thoda Magic'. That wasn't seen by too many people. So I preferred to wait for the right opportunity," said Anita, whose father, Jagdish Raj, played a cop in scores of films.
This movie is Tusshar Kapoor's next release after 'The Dirty Picture'.
For the heroine - Kulraj - this is her second release after 'Yamla Pagla Deewana' with the same director.
Samir Karnik seems to be rather happy with his heroine.
Directed by Samir Karnik, The movie is romantic comedy.
The movie stars Tusshar Kapoor and Kulraj Randhawa.
The two actors are supported by the likes of - Anupam Kher, Om Puri, Mukul Dev, Johny Lever, Anita Raaj, Sushant Singh, Chandrachur Singh and Farida Jalal.
The movie is produced by Samir Karnik as well.
The lyricist is Sandeep Srivastava.
The music has been directed by Sandesh Shandilya, Rdb, Shiv Hari and Abhishek Ray.

"Kulraj Randhawa plays Chandni, a character obsessed with everything to do with Sridevi. As such, there are ongoing references to various Sridevi starrers," says a source. (MidDAY)
She also managed to hold her own in more refined films by Hrishikesh Mukherjee's 'Achcha Bura', which was her debut movie, Basu Chatterjee's 'Laakhon Ki Baat' and K. Balachander's 'Zara Si Zindagi'.
And then she vanished after marrying producer Arjun Hingorani's son Sunil. Anita was content looking after her home, husband and son.
Though only a little away from his comedy roles - Tusshar seems to be getting back in to his romantic hero roles.
With a multistarred cast - lets hope the movie does well.
