The veteran producer died on January 24. He had also produced films such as “Chor Police” (1983), “Ameer Aadmi Ghareeb Aadmi” (1985) and “Naseeb” (1997).
“Andaz Apna Apna” is widely considered one of the best comedy films that Bollywood has ever made. Although the film only managed moderate business at the box-office, it is regarded as a classic by most Bollywood buffs two and a half decades after its release.
Commenting on Aamir’s tweet, a user shared: “RIP Vinayji… AAA was, is and will be remain most comedy film ever made in India.”
Another user wrote: “One of the most epic comedy movie in Hindi.. I have not seen any movie which still makes me laugh every time I watch it!”
As per reports, Vinay Sinha was contemplating to do something on the lines of his cult film, though not exactly a sequel or remake. Varun Dhawan and Ranveer Singh had reportedly been approached for the film.
