Rohit Shetty and Farah Khan are all set to collaborate for the remake of Amitabh Bachchan’s cult classic ‘Satte Pe Satta’, for which the makers have signed Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone in the lead roles.
Hrithik and Deepika will replace Amitabh and Hema Malini respectively. There were rumours that Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan were in talks for the remake, but Pinkvilla confirmed that Hrithik has been locked to step into Big B’s shoes in the film.
A source close to the development told the website, “Both Farah and Rohit wanted Deepika in the movie because not only do they love her but she fits the role. 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 her, she loved it and instantly gave her nod”.
This will be the first time both the actors will share the screen space.
Earlier in 2012, Hrithik reprised the role of Sr. Bachchan in the remake of ‘Agneepath’.
