After failure to obtain remake rights to ‘Satte Pate Satta’, it is reported that Farah Khan and Rohit Shetty are keen to remake the classic film ‘Hum Paanch’ and have offered the film to none other than superstar, Salman Khan.
A source told Bollywood Hungama, “Everyone is aware that Farah Khan was to direct the remake of Amitabh Bachchan’s 1982 flick Satte Pe Satta and that it’ll be produced by Rohit Shetty. Sadly, they failed to secure the rights of this classic film. Hence, they decided to tweak the story. They added lot of novel elements so that their project doesn’t seem a copy of the original. Satte Pe Satta was a story of seven brothers. Farah-Rohit’s script is changed to that of five brothers. Salman Khan obviously is offered the part of the eldest brother. The script is untitled but then David Dhawan suggested Farah Khan and Rohit Shetty to name the film Hum Paanch. They instantly liked it.”
The source added, “The script is kept guarded but it’s been said that it has tons of entertainment. And that’s obvious since two of the biggest filmmakers, known for masala fares, are associated with the project. And if a superstar like Salman Khan accepts the film, then there’s nothing like it!”
Khan has his hands full currently with ‘Radhe’ and ‘Kick 2’.
