Uday Chopra to star Michael Cera and Taylor Swift in his upcoming English Flick!

The YRF Entertainment CEO, Udaya Chopra is all set to remake the 2005 Abhishek Bachchan and Rani Mukerji starrer crackling love story Bunty Aur Babli in English and Udaya wants to make the movie more comical this time. Even, he has thought of roping in the Hollywood singer Taylor Swift and star Michael Cera in the lead star cast for the movie.

Though nothing is yet revealed in particular about the star cast of the movie, but confirming about the two Hollywood stars, Udaya said, “I’m remaking Bunty Aur Babli in English. It’s in the scripting stage and the casting is not done. I’m looking at Michael Cera and Taylor Swift. I haven’t approached them as yet, but I want to make the film a little more quirky and comic than the Indian one.”

Getting bit substantial and pragmatic, Udaya said that he wants to make more comedies in Hollywood as comedies are more accepted there in comparison to dramas. “It (Hollywood) is a different industry. Hollywood dramas don’t do well. Sci-fi and comedies do well. This is one of the reasons why I don’t want to make dramas right now,” he said.

When asked if he would like to add any Indian actor in the remake, Uday answered candid and said, “That’s not the idea. The idea is to think of ourselves as an American company. Writers, directors…everyone will be from there. But if a story requires an Indian character or if AR Rahman agrees to do my music, I will like it.”

While this will be a conventional attempt of Uday in the industry to amalgamate the status of Yash Raj Films, in chorus, it will bring him great success too, we hope. So, all the best Uday!
