Madhuri Dixit has finally been signed on for the film Satte Pe Satta remake, which is co-produced by Sanjay Dutt. It’s been ages since the two have worked together and no one could have ever thought that Sanjay and Madhuri will share screen space again.
Sanjay, who was very keen to have Aishwarya in the film, asked Madhuri to step in because director Soham Shah wanted her. While announcing the film, Soham is quoted as saying, “I was always keen on Madhuri playing Hema Malini’s role in my remake…Looks like someone up there was listening because Dhillin Mehta and Baba (Sanjay) who are co-producers sent Madhuri a message. I sent her the script and I was ecstatic when she agreed.”
Now, the movie will go on floors soon. Earlier, it was reported that Sanjay has postponed the film to 2012, but with Madhuri on board thinkgs are back on fast track. Co-producer Dhillin Mehta is also in seventh heaven and he puts his feeling in words by saying, “Honestly, the Sanjay-Madhuri pair has its own charm. We are delighted that we were able to get her to say yes to us.”
The film was announced yesterday on Madhuri’s birthday. Together Sanjay-Madhuri have given several hits like Saajan and Khalyanak.
Do you think Aishwarya was a better choice than Madhuri for Satta Pe Satta remake opposite Sanjay?
