Farah Khan is all set to remake the 1982 classic film Satte Pe Satta, which starred Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini in the lead roles. Farah will be directing the remake, which will be produced by Rohit Shetty. The makers have however not announced the cast of the film yet and there have been many speculations about who will be playing the lead roles. Latest media reports have said Hrithik Roshan and Anushka Sharma are likely to be roped in for the project. However, responding to the rumours, Farah said, "Rohit is producing the film and I am directing it. Unless we come together and make a proper official announcement, everything is speculation. Hopefully, we will make the announcement by Diwali. I am waiting for Rohit, because he is quite occupied these days, finishing the last leg of the shooting of his film 'Sooryavanshi'. Let people continue guessing and the reports run. I would still say those are all speculation."
