Will Akshay Kumar Replace Hrithik Roshan In Farah Khan’s Film?



It is  pretty  much clear  now that Hrithik Roshan is  no more a part of  Farah Khan’s remake  of  Raj N Sippy’s 1982  semi-hit  Satte  Pe Satta.

Farah is  not  only  altering the  script radically  she is  apparently now looking at replacing  Hrithik  with  none other than Akshay Kumar her old friend, turned  foe,turned  friend again.

 Farah  and Akshay had collaborated  on  the disastrous Tees Maar Khan in  2010 after she fell out with Shah Rukh Khan over his public dispute with her  husband Shrish Kunder. But  Tees Maar Khan(even the title was  designed for SRK) was  not a happy experience  for Akshay. The  two  parted ways acrimoniously.  But are now back to being buddies. 

So much so that  they are now looking at  collaborating again.

Satte Pe Satta is one  of  Akshay Kumar’s  all-time favourite  films(he’s told  me that  personally). Also,while Hrithik  has done a  Bachchan remake  Agneepath  Akshay is yet to try(dare?) to encore  the mighty Bachchan’s  cinema.Satte Pe Satta would be Akshay’s   first remake  of a  Bachchan starer, provided he  agrees  to do it.

Incidentally Akshay and Hrithik are neighbours. They  live in the same  highrise apartment. Last year  Hrithik stepped  in to play mathematician Anand Kumar  when  Akshay declined  the  role. Maybe  it’s time now for Akshay to pay the reverse compliment.
