Karisma Kapoor has been finalized to play the central role in the remake of Amitabh Bachchan’s hit film Satte Pe Satta. She will essay the role played by Hema Malini in the original. For someone starting her second innings, this role is quite good to make an impression on the audience.
Initial reports suggested that Aishwarya Rai would play the role. But her pregnancy has put her out of contention. Then director Soham Shah wanted Vidya Balan but she declined the offer because of prior commitments. Finally, Karishma had bagged the role. She is also playing the lead role in Vikram Bhatt’s 3D project Dangerous Ishq.
The remake of Satte Pe Satta is being produced by Sanjay Dutt in association with a major corporate production house. He will reprise the role played by Amitabh Bachchan in the original.
