Mumbai: Remember Abhishek Bachchan and Rani Mukerji's crackling chemistry in the con film "Bunty Aur Babli"? The 2005 movie is now being remade in English, and producer Uday Chopra plans to make it more comical than the original.

The cast of the English version is yet to be locked, but Uday, who handles Yash Raj Films' (YRF) Hollywood wing YRF Entertainment, wants to rope in Michael Cera and Taylor Swift to essay the lead parts.

"I'm remaking 'Bunty Aur Babli' in English. It's in the scripting stage and the casting is not done. I'm looking at Michael Cera and Tailor Swift. I haven't approached them as yet, but I want to make the film a little more quirky and comic than the Indian one," Uday said of the hitherto untitled film.

The actor-turned-producer says he wants to concentrate on making more comedies in Hollywood.

"It (Hollywood) is a different industry. Hollywood dramas don't do well. Sci-fi and comedies do well. This is one of the reasons why I don't want to make dramas right now," he added.

Asked if he plans to take remake other Hindi films or take Indian actors for his projects, Uday said: "That's not the idea. The idea is to think of ourselves as an American company. Writers, directors everyone will be from there. But if a story requires an Indian character or if A.R.Rahman agrees to do my music, I will like it," he said.
