Unconfirmed reports from sources close to the superstar Khan inform that Shah Rukh Khan’s next project, which all his fans are anxiously waiting for, is likely to be Farah Khan’s remake of the 1982 Amitabh Bachchan blockbuster Satte Pe Satta which incidentally was loosely based on the Hollywood musical Seven Brides For Seven Brothers.
Apparently, Shah Rukh after the debacle of Aanand Rai’s Zero wants a no-risk commercial film to be his next project. And what better foolproof commercial plan than Satte Pe Satta, the story of an unkempt uncouth family of seven brothers tamed by a rich sophisticated woman played in the original film by Hema Malini. Katrina Kaif who has earlier worked with Farah Khan in the fiasco Tees Maar Khan is expected to slip into Hema Malini’s role. Katrina has however received much acclaim for her work in Shah Rukh Khan's Zero and Salman Khan's recent film Bharat, where she plays the role of Kumud Raina.
Says a source, “Shah Rukh doesn’t want to do any project that is even remotely experimental. He is quite taken up with the script of Satte Pe Satta especially with the innovations that Farah intends to introduce into the script.” This would not be the first remake of an Amitabh Bachchan starrer that Shah Rukh intends to attempt. He has done Don franchise. And apparently, he is now done with Don. Shah Rukh Khan was recently in China for a film festival and did an interview with famous television talk show host David Letterman. Letterman even came to India and stayed with Shah Rukh Khan at his house, Mannat, and waved to Shah Rukh Khan's millions of fans on Eid ul Fitr 2019.
