Karan Johar is the owner of Dharma Productions film studio which has churned out several blockbuster, high-grossing films over the past few years. From the likes of the recent Kapoor and Sons to the cult classic Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, Karan Johar as a director, has proved his capabilities time and again. Recently, K.Jo has purchased the rights of "Oopiri" a super-successful south Indian film about a wheelchair-bound billionaire and his male caregiver. While we wait for more details on the project, check out 7 upcoming remakes of Bollywood movies that we just can't wait for:
Sanjay Leela Bhansali is all set to remake the classic movie Khalnayak. He had a word with Subhash Ghai and the two reportedly met over lunch and Ghai demanded 9 crores for the sale of the rights! The deal, however, is yet to be sealed.
Subhash Ghai has already sold the rights to his movie "Ram Lakhan" to Karan Johar. The film will be directed by Rohit Shetty. The role of the younger brother Lakhan will be played by Varun Dhawan, while Sid will play the role of the elder brother Ram.

Rohit Shetty is going to direct the remake of the Kishore Kumar-Madhubala starrer film with Shahrukh and Aishwarya in lead roles.
The two will be paired after 12 years as they were last seen in Devdas.
"Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" is the name of the remake of this movie. K.Jo has already got Aishwarya Rai, Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Fawad Khan on board and it is already generating a lot of buzz.
