Umrao Jaan is not a remake


Director JP Dutta claims that he has made a movie of the classic Umrao Jaan, about a woman kidnapped and sold into a brothel, but denies it being a remake of the famous film made 25 years back.

Dutta’s film, is his own, original version of the story and is no how inspired by Muzaffar Ali’s film.

The new Umraao Jaan, he says, is about many uncovered aspects of the original novel, that were ignored by the earlier filmmakers.

The film casts some of Bollywood’s biggest stars, with Aishwarya Rai playing Umrao Jaan alongside Abhishek Bachchan, Shabana Azmi and Sunil Shetty
