Earlier rumours suggested that Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone could be coming together for the first time for the ‘Satte Pe Satta’ remake by Farah Khan Kunder.
However, it now seems that Padukone will no longer be a part of the project. BollywoodHungama reports that Katrina Kaif is most likely to step into the shoes of Hema Malini, who played the lead in the 80s classic.
A source told the publication, “Yes, the makers were considering many top A-list actresses for the role. Considering that it was Hrithik Roshan and also owing to the fact that they needed to fill in the shoes of Hema Maliniji, the makers had a tough choice to make. But eventually, they thought Katrina would fit the bill. In fact, Katrina is quite honoured at the opportunity and she is also excited to play this interesting role.”
The source added, “Satte Pe Satta indeed had an ensemble cast and it will take a while for the makers to put in the cast together. As of now, talks are just on and as soon as all of it is finalized, the announcement regarding the same will be made.”
Roshan and Kaif have previously worked together in ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ and ‘Bang Bang’.
