Amitabh Bachchan cult movie Satte Pe Satta is all set to be remade and Farah Khan and Rohit Shetty are coming together to helm the project.
A source close to the filmmakers has revealed to DNA, that two other parties are locked in a legal wrangle over the remake rights of this Raj N Sippy directorial. “The tussle for the rights to remake Satte Pe Satta has been on in court for over a couple of years. Hopefully, it will be sorted soon,” says the informer, adding, “Rohit is certain that he won’t proceed with this subject until he acquires the rights. That’s the process he has always followed whenever he has opted to remake any movie. Of course, he will re-tell the story in his trademark larger-than-life style. But things will be clearer only after the rights issue is resolved.”
Movie buffs have to wait and watch as the fight with the rights gets sorted.
The choreographer turned director confirmed to an entertainment website BT that she is all ready to direct a movie for Rohit Shetty.
Sometimes, the universe conspires to give you what you didn’t even imagine. Together with Rohit, who I genuinely love as a brother and whose work ethic I respect and share, I can only promise a mother of all entertainers! I can’t wait to say ‘Roll, camera...’ for this one.” While Rohit Shetty had added, “It’s a privilege for my banner to have Farah direct a film for us, as she is talented and hard working. It will definitely be a wonderful association. I can’t wait to start work with this powerhouse of talent. I am looking forward to it.”
