Karan Johar's infamous chat show Koffee With Karan never runs short of tease. But with Jackie dada on the couch last night, the fun factor just catapulted a notch higher. While Shroff junior Tiger was all calm and composed, Jackie Shroff's witty answers to KJo's googlies left the audience in splits. Besides giving away himself on the show, the 80s star also played a casting director. When asked who he like to see as the leads in Ram Lakhan 2, he named Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh. Seems like the actor has a lot of faith in their camaraderie. And he possibly believes that only these two from the current gen can emulate the magic that he and Anil Kapoor had spun on screen.

Now, lest you think Ranbir and Ranveer were his first choices, let us also tell you that that certainly wasn't the case. Being the swagger he is, Jackie said that he would like to play Ram once again on screen along with Anil as Lakhan. Unfortunately, the idea didn't go down too well with Karan, who prodded the yester year actor to name someone from the present legion of actors. After thinking over the possibilities, Jackie finally came up with Ranbir and Ranveer's names.

Directed by Subhash Ghai, Ram Lakhan was about a story of two brothers, Ram, an upright and dutiful cop played by Jackie, and Lakhan, a smart talker and street dancer portayed by Anil. The commercial masala flick that released in 1989 was a blockbuster that also gave birth to Anil's famous tapori-style dance steps with the song, E ji O ji Lo ji Suno ji.

With a series of remakes being made, it would be exciting to see Ranbir and Ranveer play the two cult characters on screen. We've already been a witness to their camaraderie on Koffee With Karan. Now, we only hope Jackie dada's words turn true, and we get to see these two get groovey to Dhina Dhin Dha.
