If all goes as planned, actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will be seen opposite Sanjay Dutt as his wife, in the remake of Satte Pe Satta, which will be produced by Dutt’s production house.
Says a source, “Dutt is extremely keen that we sign Aishwarya to play the female lead opposite him. He is adamant that only Ash fits the role. The actress is keen on the idea of doing the film if everything else works out.”
The source adds, “The script writer along with the director of Satta Pe Satta, Soham Shah, will fly down to New Zealand next week to give her a story narration.
Ash is holidaying there with husband Abhishek, who is shooting in Wellington for Abbas-Mastan’s Players, along with Sonam Kapoor.”
Aishwarya and Sanjay Dutt have already been seen together in David Dhawan’s Hum Kisise Kum Nahin and Leena Bajaj’s Shabd.
Satte Pe Satta is the story of seven brothers living on a large farmhouse. The first half of the movie shows the life of the brothers who grew up under the helm of their oldest brother Ravi (Amitabh Bachchan). Ravi falls in love with Indu (Hema Malini) and marries her. She comes home and starts taking care of Ravi’s brothers, trying to civilize them. Soon enough, they all fall in love with a group of six women and shortly things take a turn.
