“Now that Farah and Rohit’s movie has been put on the backburner, one has heard that Rajesh Vasani approached Luv Ranjan to direct the remake. Luv is one of the biggest commercial blockbuster directors of today, at par with Rohit Shetty and who else better than him to direct a romantic action drama? Luv and Rajesh are also on cordial terms with everybody in Bollywood and advantage is that Luv is already doing a movie with Deepika, Ranbir Kapoor and Ajay Devgn’’.
‘’Apparently, it was his suggestion that they approach Hrithik again to play the male lead. After all, the actor had loved the characters of the good -hearted elder brother Ravi Anand and the darker yet pivotal character of Babu from the original Satte Pe Satta. Hrithik and Deepika have not done a movie before so this will be a fresh pairing. But everything is still in the nascent stages as talks have just started and nobody is willing to talk about it. If everything goes well, an announcement is expected to be made in January 2020’’ the source added.
Given how Deepika has had her huge fanboy moment for Hrithik Roshan ever since ‘War’, it would make an interesting watch to see the two stars come together for the first time ever.
