Kolkata, April 27 (IANS) Waving aside plans of remaking the iconic “Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak” (QSQT), which completes 25 years this April, the film’s leading lady Juhi Chawla said she and Aamir “will do it again” if a remake is done.
“We don’t have any plans of doing a remake. It was released on the 29th (of April) and the whole cast and crew has been invited for a screening on that day. I am very excited and looking forward to it.
“It is a foundation stone of my career so I am very emotionally attached to it. If it is made againthen Iand Aamir will do it again,” Juhi said here Friday on the sidelines of inauguration of the fertility clinic Genome.
Directed by Mansoor Khan and written by his father Nasir Hussain, QSQT saw the debut of Hussain’s nephew Aamir Khan and actress Juhi Chawla, who went on to become stars.
The entire cast is gearing up for a reunion April 29 in Mumbai where the landmark film will be screened again.
“Not only were we nobodies at the time… I know while we were making it… because it was so different from the films that were happening at the time, the crew would snigger and say what are they making.
“Nobody really knew it…it was magic which just happened,” Chawla added.
Released April 29, 1988, the love story drama broke through the norm of formula films that essayed violence.
QSQT’s music also stood out from the 1980s’ predilection towards disco tracks.
“He (Mansoor Khan) is the one who called us all for it. I am so thrilled because everybody kind of fell out of touch and we will be coming together after a long time,” said Juhi.
QSQT made the debutant pair a hit with with the masses, following which Aamir and Juhi were paired in “Love Love Love”, “Tum Mere Ho”, “Daulat Ki Jung”, “Hum hain Rahi Pyaar Ke” and “Ishq”.
