The 1973 Amitabh Bachchan-Jaya Bhaduri classic Abhimaan is all set to get a millennial treatment, this time in the hands of Tamil cinematographer-director Rajiv Menon. The filmmaker has been toying for  some time with the idea  of remaking the Hrishikesh Mukherjee classic.

Rajiv has finally zeroed in on the lead cast. Interestingly, Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan’s son Abhishek and daughter-in-law Aishwarya have been roped in to essay the parts of the singing couple who drift apart when the wife becomes more successful than the husband. A source informs, “For a very long time, Abhishek and Aishwarya have wanted to do another film together. The last time they came together was for Mani Ratnam’s Raavan in 2010. Abhimaan seems like a perfect vehicle to showcase their shared affections.”
