Hrithik Roshan & Deepika Padukone were strongly rumoured to star in Rohit Shetty, Farah Khan’s Satte Pe Satta remake. But things didn’t go well and now it seems that the project might not see the light of the day.
Reports state that Rajesh Vasani, who holds the remake rights of the original film, is moving on with Luv Ranjan to remake the classic. Interesting news is that he is considering the rumoured pair Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone to rope in for the remake.
A source close to an online portal reported, “Now that Farah and Rohit’s movie has been put on the backburner, one has heard that Rajesh Vasani approached Luv Ranjan to direct the remake. Luv is one of the biggest commercial blockbuster directors of today, at par with Rohit Shetty and who else better than him to direct a romantic action drama? Luv and Rajesh are also on cordial terms with everybody in Bollywood and the advantage is that Luv is already doing a movie with Deepika, Ranbir Kapoor, and Ajay Devgn.”
It also provided some interesting information such as, “Apparently, it was his suggestion that they approach Hrithik again to play the male lead. After all, the actor had loved the characters of the good-hearted elder brother Ravi Anand and the darker yet pivotal character of Babu from the original Satte Pe Satta. Hrithik and Deepika have not done a movie before so this will be a fresh pairing. But everything is still in the nascent stages as talks have just started and nobody is willing to talk about it. If everything goes well, an announcement is expected to be made in January 2020.”
