Sanjay Playing Amitabh in Satte Pe Satta Remake

Do you remember Amitabh’s Satte Pe Satta ? If yes, them it is again coming back but in modern shape, in which Sanjay Dutt will play Amitabh’s role. But who will be directing that the remake of super hit film. It’s Soham Shah, of Kaal and Luck infamy will direct the film, which will go on floors in April next year and expected to release on the next Diwali.

We can’t wait to see Sanju Baba as the pack of a rowdy bunch. A source says,

“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.”

When contacted, Dhillin Mehta, Chairman and Managing Director of Shri Astavinayaka 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 indeed looking forward to the project. He said,

“Satte Pe Satta is a masterpiece and we would want the magic of the film to work again for the new generation.”

Question is that who will play Hema and Amitabh’s 7 brother’s role  in the film. Keep on guessing till the next news come!
