When Farah Khan made an official announcement that she will undertake a remake of the 1982 hit film, Satte Pe Satta, fans started a guessing game about who will be cast in the movie. Media outlets too joined in the race and there were rumors that Hema Mailini’s role will be played by Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif, or Anushka Sharma. And when the time came to guess the name of the actor who will play Big B aka Amitabh Bachchan’s role, rumors were that it was going to be either Akshay Kumar, Shah Rukh Khan or Hrithik Roshan.
But that was a while back, now a new round of rumors are making a buzz in the market that it is indeed Hrithik Roshan & Anushka Sharma, who will play Amitabh Bachchan & Hema Mailini in the Satte Pe Satta Remake respectively. A Spotboye report has confirmed this rumor. And if things go as they seem to be, then this would be the first time that we will get to see Hrithik Roshan & Anushka Sharma on silver screen together.
We weren’t able to see this combination earlier, because as compared to Hrithik who made his Bollywood debut 19 years ago with his father’s home production: Koi Mil Gaya. Anuskha is just a decade old in the industry. She made her Bollywood debut with Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi in 2008.
As of now, both these actors have given a verbal nod to work on this project and will sign a contract soon. The film will enter the production stage in December this year and is scheduled to hit theaters in late 2020. The project will be a joint collaboration between Farah Khan, Rohit Shetty and Reliance Entertainment.
Talking about Hrithik’s upcoming project. His WAR where he shares the frame with Tiger Shroff and Vaani Kapoor is lined up for release on 2nd Oct 2019. If our guess is correct, then this will be Hrithik’s first project in the capacity of an antagonist.
