Karishma Kapoor, who is making her comeback with Vikram Bhatt’s Dangerous Ishq, has been finalized to reprise the role played by Hema Malini in the remake of Satte Pe Satta. Amitabh’s dual role will be played by Sanjay Dutt who is also producing the film. The regular shooting of the film will start in December. This remake will be directed by Soham Shah, who has earlier made Kaal and Luck.
Initially, Aishwarya Rai and Kajol were contacted for the role. Aishwarya’s pregnancy and Kajol who delivered a baby, had ruled themselves out. Vidya Balan was also considered but she had prior commitments.
The role played by Hema Malini in the original has won critical acclaim and widely appreciated by the audience. Director Soham says that Karishma will perfectly fit into the role.
