Deepika Padukone And Hrithik Roshan To Do A Satte Pe Satta
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan and Dreamgirl Hema Malini starrer Satte Pe Satta was an absolute hit when it released on 22nd January 1982. Amazing acting from the two, exceptional screenplay and a hit story, the movie had all the ingredients to be a hit.
37 years are the release of the Satte Pe Satta, Farah Khan has decided to remake the movie. And who’re playing the leads? According to rumours, Hrithik Roshan and Deepika will step into the shoes of Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini respectively. The remake will be produced by none other than Rohit Shetty.
Right now, Deepika Padukone wrapped up the shoot of her next film Chhapaak while Hrithik Roshan is busy promoting his next big release Super 30. Reports further suggest that while Hrithik is set to step in Amitabh Bachchan’s shoes, Deepika has also given her nod to recreate Hema Malini’s role.
A source close to the film’s development told that both Farah and Rohit wanted to cast Deepika for 2 reasons. First is that they both love her and second is that she fits the role perfectly. The source said, “Both Farah and Rohit wanted Deepika Padukone in the movie because not only do they love her but she fits the role to the T. When DP debuted, everyone felt she had an uncanny resemblance to Hema Ji in terms of her beauty as well. When Farah narrated the story to DP, she loved it and instantly gave her nod.”
If the sources are to be believed, the movie will mark the third collaboration between Farah, Rohit and Deepika. While that happens, it will be the first big-screen appearance for Deepika and Hrithik together.
Meanwhile, as soon as Deepika wrapped up the shoot of Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak, she hopped on Kabir Khan’s ’83. While Ranveer Singh had already been cast as the lead, portraying World Cup-winning Indian cricket team captain Kapil Dev. Deepika has been called onboard to portray Kapil Dev’s wife Romi Dev. The real-life couple made the announcement on their social media with some fin-filled photos.
Hrithik Roshan is busy promoting his upcoming movie Super 30, co-starring Mrunal Thakur which is set to hit theatres on 12th July this year. The Greek god’s ex-wife Sussance has watched his movie during a special screening and said that she’s really proud of him. She went on to call Super 20 as one of Hrithik’s best films so far.
