Shah Rukh Khan, Arjun Kapoor to play brothers in Rohit Shetty's next?
Rohit Shetty's remake of the classic 'Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi', apparently, will have Shah Rukh Khan playing Ashok Kumar's role, while Arjun Kapoor may essay Kishore Kumar's role
This could be something that Arjun Kapoor should be beaming about this time. If sources are to be believed, Arjun will be playing Kishore Kumar's role in the remake of the classic comedy, 'Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi', which starred all the three Ganguly brothers — Ashok, Kishore and Anup Kumar.

The project, an official remake of 'Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi' (1958), is helmed by Rohit Shetty. SRK is said to have agreed to play the eldest brother Ashok Kumar's character in the film. According to a source, "The original script had three brothers and we are sticking to the concept. However, it is not finalised if Arjun will be playing Kishore or Anup Kumar's role."
And who would be playing the role of lovely Madhubala? (Remember Ek Ladki bheegi bhaagi si?). It is said that the makers are still undecided about who to offer that pivotal role. "The team is also working on the script. Right now, they can't reveal much about the film," adds a source.
Arjun and Rohit remained unavailable for comment.
