This has been in the news for quite a while now that that Farah Khan will soon be collaborating with filmmaker Rohit Shetty for her next directorial venture. As per the incoming reports, they are planning an official remake of the 1982 blockbuster ‘Satte Pe Satta‘ that had Amitabh Bachchan & Hema Malini as the lead couple. New rumors suggest that Hrithik Roshan and Anushka Sharma are being considered to play lead couple in the remake.
In a recent media interaction, when Farah was asked for updates about her upcoming project, she said,
“They (people) have made their own story, decided whom we are making the film with, and also who has left the movie. Till we announce what we are making, what’s the title, who all are in the movie, everything else is just rumour and speculation which we don’t even want to refute because there is no point.”
When this ‘Main Hoon Na’ director was asked to express his views on this whole idea of remakes, she said,
“Yes, why not? At one point in time, I used to look down upon remakes and ask ‘why is he doing this?’ But now I think it is worldwide (remakes are made worldwide). I realized that after having children… My kids haven’t watched the movies that I loved in my childhood or when I was growing up. They are not going to watch them now because the movies are dated, so why not give a fresh spin if the story is interesting or something… You can modernise it and make it for today’s audiences.”
A mother to 3 children, Farah also expressed her views about motherhood & how it has changed her outlook towards life. Talking about her kids & movies, she shared that her son would love for her to make a Hollywood-style superhero movie.
“My daughters are very much into chick flicks which I don’t make, so…. My movies are anyway very child-friendly. They are PG-rated, have family values, songs and are funny, so I think there is a child in me that makes movies for children,” she added.
