Woah! That is a lot of news in one and also quite star studded we had say! Rohit Shetty aims to make his production with Farah Khan grand and if sources are to be believed, the filmmaker has already kicked off on his ambitious project, which is said to be a remake of the Amitabh Bachchan – Hema Malini starrer Satte Pe Satta and locked in the cast. Well, considering that it is going to be extensive, it hardly comes as a surprise that the director-producer was keen on Bollywood bigwigs and now sources have it that he has finalized Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif as the lead pair of the film.

If the news is true, Katrina Kaif will reunite with Shah Rukh Khan for the third time after the recent release Zero and the 2012 release Jab Tak Hai Jaan. A source close to the project said, “Farah Khan always loves to work with Shah Rukh Khan. And she thinks what better way to make a comeback after Happy New Year. She has been keen on working with the actor since a while now and feels that this will be a good opportunity. Rohit is absolutely on board with the idea. And Farah has always liked Katrina and is quite comfortable her. The two actors have shown keen interest on the script and they are yet to sign on the dotted line. So if all goes well, the four of them will come together for the first time.”
The film in question will be a remake of the 70s cult film Satte Pe Satta which starred Amitabh Bachchan in a double role along with Hema Malini as the leading lady and a host of other actors. Besides Shah Rukh and Katrina, the source mentioned that the makers are looking for other actors who will be playing the role of the supporting cast. An official announcement is yet to be made on these details!

I would like this top happen. Kaafi time se keh raha hun that SRK should team up with Farah again.

only issue is that Katrina should not be in the movie. she doesn't have good chemistry with SRK and they were just in a big flop together.

Srk should come with a new face other than these Deepika, Anushka & Katrina.
I would say go with a fresh pair ..


It's not just about the chemistry too, I have read that the role in the original movie required a lot of comedy and Hema ji played it really well. Katrina doesn't have those comedy chops. I think one of SRK's older heroines would be good here. I would love Juhi in this movie, though I know it won't happen.


Bring Srk - Kajol once again ...


SRK Kajol in a movie produced by Rohit, might as well cast Varun as one of the brothers and title it Dilwale 2

I wouldn't mind they, i mean it's way better than doing so called content movies and it also won't waste SRK's time & money on VFX and other random stuffs.

Best way to get an blockbuster. No VFX Shit. Pure Commerical Movie + Holiday release = Blockbuster. Do it SRK. Do these kinda movies. Atleast 3-4 in a row. Just like Sallu Bhai.

It just reminds 2014 15 days of Srk wher he was giving 170ct 140cr with farah n rohit in masala genre.. that time srkfans were those are crap directors they do crap movies now srk is coming with content directors like manish imtiaz anand nw it wil be Dhamaka 300cr gone.. Result 80cr 60cr 88cr.. nw Srk n his fans are like 80cr se toh 140 170cr better hai atleast we isnt getting embrasment of failing to score over 100cr in 2020..

Do It Shahrukh. Another Disaster Coming Up!

answered by Assistant Director (42.1k points)

Ajay wont be a disaster. This kind of stuff is SRK'S best bet for a hit movie.


Dekhte hai par mujhe to nahi lagta ki lead hero ke taur par ab srk hit dega. Hope so ki de de par as par my opinion its not possible.


Shahrukh has the habit of giving disasters even with big directors.. Anand rai, Imtiaz, Rahul dholakia, manesh sharma, Rohit shetty to name a few...


Seeing his current state, a hit movie seems the best result for him.

Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif not approached for Satte Pe Satta remake

Well, as per our sources, there is no truth to this news. A source stated that the makes haven't started approaching anyone yet. Currently, they are writing the final draft of the dialogues of the film and once it is complete, then only the makers will decide who will star in it. This clear all the rumours that SRK and Kat will be working together.

I've also read that makers of original aren't willing to sell remake rights.
