Hrithik To Reprise Amitabh Bachchan's Role
Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan stole everybody's attention with his tanned look in the Super 30 trailer and may also sign his next film with Farah Khan. In the event that the entertainer is settled for the choreographer turned producer's next undertaking - an adaptation of the 1982 film Satte Pe Satta, he may venture into the shoes of lead on-screen character Amitabh Bachchan for the job.
According to the hearsay, 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 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.
Satte Pe Satta had Amitabh and Hema Malini in the lead roles. The film was an action satire and furthermore featured Sarika, Shakti Kapoor, Kanwaljit Singh, Amjad Khan, Mac Mohan and others. It was narrated by Kader Khan. Satte Pe Satta followed the account of seven stranded, uneducated siblings whose lives change after the oldest one, played by Amitabh Bachchan, weds Indu (Hema) and brings her home.
The trailer of Hrithik's upcoming film Super 30 released a couple of days earlier and earned a decent reaction. While the on-screen character drew consideration for his tanned look and Bihari accent, the rousing story of how he tries to educate the oppressed IIT competitors appears to be encouraging. The film likewise stars Pankaj Tripathi and Aditya Srivastava of CID fame and is slated to released on July 12.
