What if Dil Chahta Hai Was To Be Remade in 2017?

We being 90’s kids are indebted to Farhan Akhtar for Dil Chahta Hai. To us friendship was not showcased this alluringly ever before. For our generation Dil Chahta Hai was the coolest movie ever and that is where the trend of visiting Goa with your inseparable friends started. Isn’t it? This was a game changer movie for every 90’s kid!

Dil Chahta was a trendsetter in every term. Be it the Goa plans or the Amir Khan’s stud look. We loved everything about the movie and the movie for kids of the 90’s was something that took you to a different space altogether and you just don’t want to come out of that world of imagination Dil Chahta Hai puts you in.

Dil Chahta hai was released in 2001 and was the dream project of Farhan Akhtar who was the director of the movie. The movie enjoys a hefty IMDb rating of 8.2 and even if it was 10 on 10 we would have not complained. IT WAS SHEER MAGIC!

Dil Chahta Hai Was To Be Remade

So, now after all the evolution our life styles and things around us have gone through what if Dil Chahta is created again? You might say Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara fills that place to a large extent but na! Dil Chahta Hai is all about Goa and if it ever comes back we would want it to relive our Goa memories! Not everyone can afford to go to Spain right?

Each of the stars in the film has done perfect justice to their roles. Can anyone else recreate that charismatic aura? Do the modern day Bollywood stars have what it takes to recreate magic Dil Chahta Hai weaved? Though we would once again love to see the same stars but it’s just that they no longer look just out of college now (xD)




Akshaye Khanna has played this calm and composed artist beautifully. He likes to replicate the feelings and emotions on his canvas and his aura is just so beautiful in the film. He is the cutest and the sweetest of the three inseparable friends and lives by his heart. All he understands is love!

“Pyar soch samajhke nahi kia jata, bas ho jata hai”

Who can do a Sid as good as Akshaye? Umm it is not that easy to play an artist! We would give this to Sidharth Malhotra. What better than Sid playing Sid? Sidharth has the charm and the patience which this character exhibits and he we believe would be the most perfect man for the job.

He is cute, he is sweet and he would seem a lot graceful being the companion of the canvas and playing that guy who is all about emotions and love.


Haan main, magar vo, suno toh? Haha! Sameer is always confused about love and relationships and has a cute little aura of his own in the movie. Poor Sameer then gets caught between the cold war Sid and Akash enter into and he then plays the bridge. But still the crux of his character is his confusion and that is the highlight of Sameer.

So, who can play Sameer as good as Saif? Even though enormously confused about what he wants from life Sameer is also enormously adorable and we can’t think of a better name than Shahid Kapoor to play Sameer. Shahid would be perfect, isn’t it? Shahid knows how to carry a chocolate boy image better than anyone else.



We know you’ve been waiting for this! We saved the best for the last. Akash Malhotra would always be the spine of Dil Chahta Hai or in fact the nervous system of Dil Chahta Hai. From being a stud who refutes love and feelings all the times to the lover boy who goes beyond extents for his love, Amir goes some great transitions and he carries everything with such grace.

Though, Amir could still play a young brat we don’t doubt that but let us see if someone else can fill in his shoes. It would not be easy for Amir was the real trend setter in this trend setting movie!

How about Ranbir Kapoor? He goes through a similar transition in Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani. In fact his story in Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani has great resemblance to Akash in Dil Chahta Hai. So, we think he would be the perfect one to sway between an inertness to love and then being all emotional and all about love.

So, this was what we thought would look like a beautiful landscape which shall recreate the fabulous ambit of fascination Dil Chahta Hai is known for. We hope you liked it!
