For the last few months, ever since the announcement was made about Rohit Shetty and Farah Khan teaming up for a project, there has been constant speculation about who the main lead would be. It was then revealed that FK is making a film, which will be adapted from the classic Raj N Sippy directorial Satte Pe Satta, which had Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini playing the lead roles. 

A quirky comedy that revolves around the story of seven brothers, Farah plans to make a modern day adaptation of the same. And for the same, she has almost locked the hero. A source, close to the development, reveals, "Farah has already discussed the idea with Hrithik Roshan, who has also given a verbal nod to the project. Farah has reworked the whole script and designed it to suit the contemporary times. They needed a superstar who would command the same screen presence as Big B and Duggu was their first choice. Farah and Hrithik have been friends for decades now so he immediately heard the story and okayed it. The final modalities will be worked out soon and the actor will also make an announcement right after that." It's an interesting association not just for Hrithik and Farah but also for the actor and Rohit Shetty, who is producing the film. Rohit has always been keen on getting Hrithik on board for a project but it hasn't happened in the past. 

While names like Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar had been doing the rounds, the team picked Hrithik for a reason. "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." Now, the casting for the female lead, along with the other actors will be in process.

Bad choice

Deepika as an actress!! And here is my list of six brothers — Get all of these great TV actors — all kind of talented new comers !!! But please have Hrithik and Deepika ...

Farah makes absurd, over-the-top, masala entertainers. In other words, brainless movies. Audiences are now intelligent. They want content-driven cinema. Farah can't deliver that. I would advise both Hrithik and Abhishek to stay away from this doomed project

Abhishek plsssss. No one else will do. Abhishek Abhishek Abhishek.

Lol, this is why I was laughing when they were hyping Hrithik in that other article. He's got script sense just as bad as Shahrukh Khan, except somehow worse? I literally think no one would be so stupid to sign Mohenjo Daro but Hrithik.

Ohhh Hrithik. Poor fool. Farah Khan hasn't made a good movie in over 10 years and even then, she's just like Karan, she relies on Shahrukh Khan to control the steering wheel. We all saw what happened with Tees Maar Khan, that disaster. That wasn't even "so bad it's good", it was actually boring. It was a remake too. And remaking an Amitabh Bachchan movie... never a good move.

Should take Katrina. They look amazing together.

Deepika as heroine Please

Abishek bachchan would be the better choice

This will do wonders if they can bring Hrithik Katrina or Hrithik Deepika as the leads!

Hritik is the best choice. Proud of the prodicer. Waiting eagerly for the movie.

What abt sanju??? We tght role was being offered to him(heard this long time ago) and it was in d newspapers as well

Give chance any new comer as female lead like Rakul preet.
She is beautiful & talented.

Please Farah Khan ma'am just please spare Hrithik Roshan sir I think saate pe saath movie would be a very bad idea because I think no one is better than shri Amitabh Bachchan sir so don't do this ma'am we don't want to see a classic movie remake if this movie will made again so this will be like Sajid Khan's sir himattwala movie so please spare us

Please Farah Khan ma'am just please spare Hrithik Roshan sir I think saate pe saath movie would be a very bad idea because I think no one is better than shri Amitabh Bachchan sir so don't do this ma'am we don't want to see a classic movie remake if this movie will made again so this will be like Sajid Khan's sir himattwala movie so please spare us

Abhishek bachchan will better choice

Vuvvuc

Stop ruining classics.Bollywood ko ho kya gaya hai bhai .Out of scripts and songs

I didn't expect you to do that you are remake in classics movie I talk about Farah khan making her debut as a director in main hoon na this film is successful but won't like flop again and again tees maar khan and happy new year both films are flops. I request you please don't remake with this is one of evergreen films .but no such thing as a good subject and content driven movies based on New concept it's matter

Hrithik shud do it! Will be different genre and light hearted for him! I want to see Rohit Shetty with Hrithik in a Action film too one day!

I think he is perfect choice for this role. He has the dignity n aura of Bachchan. If they get Deepika for it, it will be a casting coup of sorts!! Hrithik and Deepika deserve to work in one movie atleast!

Please don't do it for remake again but Farah khan do again and again flops for hritik stardom it's classics movie IN 80.

Lol great choice. Hopefully they won’t pull a Tees Maar Khan or Happy New Year on you.

Don't do it . Run far away from Farah.
