Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone together for the first time in Farah Khan’s Satte Pe Satta sounds like a casting coup. But it isn’t really true. While Hrithik has given his nod, Deepika is unlikely to do so,as her bandwidth is entirely filled with the amount of work she wants to take on.
There are also reports of Preity Zinta being pencilled in for Satte Pe Satta.
“Not true at all,” say sources close to Preity. “She was offered one of the female leads from Satte Pe Satta but not the role played by Hema Malini in the original. Why would she agree to be part of a film where she has to play second fiddle to another leading lady?”
At the moment Farah Khan’s casting for Satte Pe Satta remains highly tentative. She has Hrithik Roshan filling in the Bachchan’s formidable shoes. That apart , she needs a strong boxoffice-friendly leading lady for Hrithik and six other prominent male actors amd actresses.
It won’t be easy finding saleable actors for so many roles. Unless she narrows down the number of siblings in the script.
