A source revealed to a leading entertainment portal that Deepika Padukone was the first choice for the film. Both Farah Khan and Rohit Shetty not only love Deepika, but she also fit the image that they had in mind.

Furthermore, Deepika Padukone’s debut alongside Shah Rukh Khan in Om Shanti Om got the makers thinking about the uncanny resemblance that she had to Hema Malini, in terms of her looks and overall appearance too! The source further revealed that Farah Khan has narrated the Satte Pe Satta script to Deepika, and she loved it and instantly gave the project her nod.

Coincidentally, Deepika Padukone was directed by Farah Khan in her debut film. They have also worked together in the multi-starrer Happy New Year. Deepika will be working with Rohit Shetty for the second time, after having previously collaborated with him in Chennai Express. Deepika will also be seen in Kabir Khan’s 83, in which she will play husband Ranveer Singh’s on-screen wife.

Deepika Padukone and Hrithik Roshan will be working together for the first time. Hrithik and Farah Khan have been friends for several years – Farah has also choreographed some of Hrithik’s most iconic songs including Ek Pal Ka Jeena from Kaho Na Pyaar Hai. Hrithik Roshan is, in the meanwhile, gearing up for the release of his next film Super 30.
