The film borrows its title from Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s 1980 hit film, which had actress Rekha in the lead role. Sonam Kapoor’s ‘Khoobsurat’, in its essence remains much like Rekha’s film.
The first trailer of the film presents Sonam Kapoor as a physiotherapist called in for the recovery of Prosenjit Chatterjee, who has step into the shoes of veteran actor actor Ashok Kumar for the film.
Just as Rekha was a misfit in her sister’s family, controlled by Dina Pathak in the Hrishikesh Mukherjee film, likewise Sonam Kapor is a misfit in the royal family where she is the doctor on duty.
Free spirited Sonam battles the strict royal regime of Ratna Pathak Shah, who plays the royal head.
The basic skeleton of the film remains the same with a new outward appearance to match with the current milieu, a fact, quite evident with Sonam’s styling in the film!
The film also stars Fawad Afzal Khan and Aditi Rao Hydari in lead roles. The remake is all set to hit the silver screen on September 19.
