‘Satte Pe Satta’ Remake To Star Cast Sanjay Dutt
The remake bug has once again caught the attention of the filmmakers, it is reported that Sanjay Dutt would don the role of Amitabh Bachchan in ‘Satte Pe Satta’ remake.
Soham Shah is all set to remake the super-hit movie of 80’s ‘Satte Pe Satta’, the movie was originally directed by Raj Sippy which starred the megastar Amitabh in the lead role.
A source also reveals, “This is one film that many producers wanted to remake. Raj Sippy who directed the original also wanted to remake the film and had titled it ‘Seven.’ He had also spoken to Sanjay Dutt about playing the lead role in his remake. Similarly, Sohail Khan also wanted to remake the film with Salman playing the lead. But Sohail dropped the idea later.”
“Astavinayaka then spoke to Sanjay Dutt, who happens to be very close to Raj and Romu Sippy, the original producers of the film and later bought the rights. Soham was roped in later.”
The chairman and MD of Ashtvinayaka, Dhillin Mehta said, “‘Satte Pe Satta’ is a cult film. The script of the film is so interesting that it has stood the test of time. Be it the 80’s, when the film was made, or now, it is still an interesting story to tell. We were wondering how to go about it and Sanjay Dutt helped us get the rights. Now we are looking forward to make the film.”
Soham Shah is also happy for making such a movie, the male lead role of the movie has been decided, but who would don the role of Hema Malini is still a mystery.
