Aiswarya Rai play the role of Hema Malini: If things go as planned, the remake of the 70s superhit Satte Pe Satta will see the stunning Aishwarya Rai doing the role of Hema Malini opposite Sanjay Dutt.
It’s no one else but Ash. Earlier the rumours were rife that Vidya Balan will do the role but as per sources Sanjay Dutt wants only Ash. “We don't know how the rumour started that Vidya had been signed to play Sanju’s wife in Satte Pe Satta. Nobody even approached her. Dutt is extremely keen that we sign Aishwarya to play the female lead opposite him,” a source tells a tabloid.
The film is going to be produced by Sanjay’s own production house, and it’s heard that Ash who is also close to the Dutt household, has shown interest in doing the remake. Since she is now in New Zealand holidaying with hubby Abhishek Bachchan, who is shooting there for Abbas-Mastan’s film Players, the writer of Satte Pe Satta remake will especially fly down to New Zealand to give her a story narration.
Till now Ash has worked with Sanjay in only two films: Hum Kisi Se Kum Nahin (2002) and Shabd (2005). Both the films were flops.
