MUMBAI: Farah Khan will soon remake the 1982 release Satte Pe Satta after making some necessary changes in the script to give it a contemporary touch.
Latest reports around the film are about who could be playing the central character in the film – the one played by Amitabh Bachchan in the Raj Sippy original. According to an entertainment portal, Hrithik Roshan has already given a nod for the film.
A source told the portal, “Farah has already discussed the idea with Hrithik Roshan, who has also given a verbal nod to the project. Farah has reworked the whole script and designed it to suit the contemporary times. They needed a superstar who would command the same screen presence as Big B and Duggu was their first choice. Farah and Hrithik have been friends for decades now. So he heard the story and immediately okayed it. The final modalities will be worked out soon and the actor will also make an announcement right after that.”
The source further added, “The hero has to look the eldest of the lot and still not too old for marriage. They wanted someone in their 40s as the role would fit him perfectly. In fact, even Amitji was 40 when Satte Pe Satta released.” Well, we hope an official confirmation is made soon.
