Ever since filmmaker Rohit Shetty announced his collaboration with choreographer-turned-filmmaker Farah Khan for a movie, fans have been waiting to know what the duo is going to make.

Though the makers have not made any official announcement regarding the project they have teamed up for, some reports suggest that the two are planning to remake the 1982 film Satte Pe Satta.

Yes, you heard that right! Rohit and Farah are planning to give a modern makeover to the cult film featuring Amitabh Bachchan, Hema Malini, Amjad Khan, Ranjeeta Kaur, Sachin Pilgaonkar, Shakti Kapoor, Paintal, Inderjeet, Sarika, Kanwaljit Singh, Prema Narayan, Mac Mohan and Kalpana Iyer amongst others.

We also hear that two other parties are already fighting a legal battle to obtain the remake rights of the film. It will be interesting to see who finally walks away with the remake rights of Satte Pe Satta.

“The tussle for the rights to remake Satte Pe Satta has been on in court for over a couple of years. Hopefully, it will be sorted soon. Rohit is certain that he won’t proceed with this subject until he acquires the rights. That’s the process he has always followed whenever he has opted to remake any movie. Of course, he will retell the story in his trademark larger-than-life style. But things will be clearer only after the rights issue is resolved,” a source divulges.

Meanwhile, Rohit Shetty is gearing up to start work on his next directorial venture Sooryavanshi, toplined by superstar Akshay Kumar.
