- "Ranbir and Varun are great," says Subhash Ghai
- Subhash Ghai dodged queries about the delay in Ram Lakhan remake
- Karan Johar will produce the remake while Rohit Shetty will direct it
In 2014, Rohit Shetty and Karan Johar had announced that they will collaborate to make the remake of Ram Lakhan. However, there has been no progress on the project. "They're taking their time. I know whenever they'll make the film, they'll make it well," Subhash Ghai told PTI. As of now, no one has been cast in the lead roles but names of Hrithik Roshan and Abhishek Bachchan; Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh (also backed by Anil Kapoor) have cropped up in the past for the new age Ram and Lakhan.

In Ram Lakhan, Jackie Shroff played the role of a righteous cop Ram while Anil Kapoor played Lakhan, Ram's wayward brother, who falls into the enemy's trap. It was one of the most successful films directed by Subhah Ghai and it resonates with today's generation courtesy of Anil Kapoor's iconic song My Name Is Lakhan.
