Previously there were rumors that the filmmakers may sign actors like Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar for the lead role in the remake of Satte pe Satta. However, according to sources, Farah Khan selected Hrithik for a reason.
Here’s what the report says:
“They didn’t want someone too old or too young for this movie. The hero has to look the eldest of the lot and still not too old for marriage. They wanted someone in their 40s as the role would fit them perfectly. In fact, even Amit ji was 40 when Satte Pe Satta released.”
The 1982’s “Satte Pe Satta” starred Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini in the lead roles. The story revolved around seven brothers. After the death of their parents, Ravi Anand (Amitabh Bachchan), the eldest of seven, takes it upon himself to raise his brothers.
