A classic cult film, Amar Akbar Anthony starring Amitabh Bachchan, the late Rishi Kapoor and the late Vinod Khanna in the lead came out back in 1977. The Manmohan Desai directorial was among the hits of those times and also starred Shabana Azmi, Neetu Kapoor and Parveen Babi as the leading ladies. However, in this age of remakes, Neena Gupta was given a chance to recast the classic film with female leads in place of men during a chat with Neha Dhupia on her podcast show's season 5 and she selected Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt and Vidya Balan for it. 

Talking about recasting, Neena was asked by Neha several questions regarding picking new age actors in 2020 for certain old classics. From Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro remake to Amar Akbar Anthony with women, Neena Gupta boldly replied to Neha with some great selections. When it comes to picking female leads in place of men in Amar Akbar Anthony, she said, "Three women! – Alia, Kareena, maybe Vidya Balan." Further, for Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro remake, she picked 'Hrithik Roshan.' But, even for Gajraj Rao's role in Badhaai Ho, Neena picked Hrithik if the film was ever remade. As she was quizzed about Anil Kapoor, Jackie Shroff starrer Ram Lakhan's remake, Neena said, "Jackie Shroff can still do it. For Anil Kapoor in Ram Lakhan, acha, I can’t say Hrithik again na? Uh, Ayushmann." 

Three women! – Alia, Kareena, maybe Vidya Balan.

Finally, to cast Sonam Kapoor's role in Veere Di Wedding, she picked Anushka Sharma. The fun segment was shot during the new season of No filter Neha and Neena opened up about many things including sharing screen space for the first time with daughter Masaba Gupta in Netflix show Masaba Masaba. The show received immense praise and applause from fans. Not just this, Neena opened up about a remake of Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro and said that things fizzled out. She said, "They were planning to make ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro 2’. I read the script also. It was a big, huge script and they were saying we will come back to you for the dates par who fizzle out ho gaya aur hua hi nahi. Kaafi saal pehle ki baat hai." The actress has received a lot of love on social media and often her posts and videos about her lockdown life go viral among netizens.

Instead of advising Sara on whom to date she should have advised Karisma to not marry a divorcee like Sanjay Kapoor. She herself also married Saif, a divorcee. Perhaps she wants Sara to follow suit become a gold digger.

Kareena and Karisma are gold diggers. Both married divorcees for their money. Kareena is a witch. Karisma used her kids as pawns to extract money from Sanjay Kapoor.

Kareena has poisoned Sara’s life. What right does she have to make fun of who Sara dates.

Anonymous 3 weeks ago

Kareena influenced Saif to get Sushant out of Sara’s life. She is a horrible step mom. Sara is prettier and younger and that’s why kareena is jealous of her.

Tumhari bhasha Dekho... Tum jaise log khud apne baap, mama, chacha, kaka ke naam loge to get jobs and ahead in life. Magar Nepotism ka jhanda le kar ghumego, Kangana ki tarha... Jo khud apni Behen aur Bhai ko apne company mein rakha hein.
