The original Hukumat starring Dharmenra and Rati Agnihotri was a huge hit and if things go as planned then Sunny Deol will step into the shoes of his father in the remake.

While this father and son duo have done films together, this will be the first time that Sunny Deol will be reprising a role that was played by Dharmendra many years ago.
Anil Sharma, who also helmed the original project, will be directing the remake too. Apparently Sunny Deol has already given his nod for the project.
A source said, "Hukumat (1987) starring Dharmendra and Rati Agnihotri was a runaway hit. If things go well then Prakash Raj will play the villain (originally played by Sadavshiv Amrapurkar) in the film."
According to reports, Anil Sharma is also planning to re-use one of the famous tracks from the original, Na Zulm that was originally composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.
When the film released in 1987, it ran successfully for 75 weeks at the box office. Anil Sharma added, "It is too early to talk about it as I am busy with another film. There is no other actor better than Sunny to play the lead. Only he can do justice to Dharamji's character."
