The male lead was finalised with ‘Super 30’ actor Hrithik Roshan on board, but the search for his leading lady was still on. While earlier reports had suggested that Deepika Padukone is in talks with the makers for the remake, it has now be revealed that it is actually Katrina who will be playing the lead role!
A source revealed to a leading entertainment portal that several leading actresses were under consideration. However, the makers have shortlisted Katrina to play the lead role in the film.
Yes, the makers were considering many top A-list actresses for the role. Considering that it was Hrithik Roshan and also owing to the fact that they needed to fill in the shoes of Hema Maliniji, the makers had a tough choice to make. But eventually they thought Katrina would fit the bill. In fact, Katrina is quite honoured at the opportunity and she is also excited to play this interesting role.
Satte Pe Satta is a film about seven brothers, the eldest being played by Amitabh Bachchan. Hema Malini had essayed the role of the lead actress in the earlier film. The makers of the remake are currently searching for the remaining cast members who would befit the other roles.
