The movie is all set for a remake and it is produced by Vikram Khakhar and Sameer Raj Sippy who is the grandson of N. C. Sippy, who was the original producer of the movie Anand. 

Vikram Khakhar said, “Digging into our own classics, we will find invaluable gems rather than scouting for stories, Internationally or Regionally. Placing Anand in the post-Covid era, where we emphasize the value of life, will enhance the story of Anand.” 

Ramesh Sippy said keeping the new generation in mind, “Keeping in mind the sensibilities of the original film and the emotions attached, I felt the current generation needs to be retold the many stories that are so relevant today and especially when there is a great appetite for good content.” 

The star cast and other details are yet to be finalized.
