Katrina Kaif To Work In Dibakar Banerjee's Seeta Aur Geeta Remake
Dibakar Banerjee is making a movie with Katrina Kaif which is a remake of Ramesh Sippy's 1972 movie Seeta Aur Geeta.
Katrina will be seen in a double role of twins but, the director has planned the characters to be very different than that of Hema Malini's in the original flick. However, the director has asked her to watch Guru Dutt's Pyasa, Bimal Roy's Devdas and movies which represents pain so that she can enact the pain of the weaker sister among the twins properly.
Dibakar said, "I love Seeta Aur Geeta. It is great fun to watch the film. But I don't view Seeta as good and Geeta as evil. One is weak, and the other aggressive. The evil forces come from outside."
He added, "Seeta and Geeta are two halves of a complete individual. We may have hidden fears and insecurities like Seeta but we also possess amazing reserves of courage like Geeta. We, like the two sisters, take injustice to a point and then we give it back. Watching Seeta tortured by her wicked aunt is not easy for us. The aunt tries to strip Seeta of all dignity. In one sequence, she even takes Seeta's sari off. But when the aunt gets it back from Geeta, the joy and relief is therapeutic."
