The 1982 hit film Satte Pe Satta with Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini in the lead roles directed by Raj Sippy is being remade now with Sanjay Dutt playing the role of Big B. The film is the story of seven brothers and was inspired by 1954 Hollywood musical ‘Seven Brides for Seven Brothers’ starring Howard Keel and Jane Powell.
The remake of Satte Pe Satta will be directed by Soham Shah. The story is being spruced up to meet the contemporary sensibilities, but Sanjay Dutt is sure to repeat most of Big B’s dialogues in the original. The remake is being produced by Shri Ashtavinayak productions.
