Preity Zinta, who was last seen in “Bhaiaji Superhit” (2018), was reportedly offered to play the second lead in the official remake of cult Hindi film “Satte Pe Satta” (1982).

Once Preity Zinta used to be one of the leading actresses of Hindi cinema. She has delivered a number of hits in her heyday. However, her stardom faded after she took a long sabbatical from films and decided to settle down in real-life. Preity Zinta was last seen in the 2018 film Bhaiaji Superhit which turned out to be a dud at the box-office.

Now rumours have surfaced that Preity Zinta was recently approached to play a pivotal part in Farah Khan’s next directorial venture, which is an official remake of cult Hindi film Satte Pe Satta (1982). However, it was not the lead role that evergreen actress Hema Malini played in the original film.

The lead role in the film is reportedly being played by the reigning queen of Bollywood, Deepika Padukone, while Hrithik Roshan is rumoured to be stepping into the shoes of Amitabh Bachchan. According to reports, Preity Zinta did not accept the offer as she does not want to play second fiddle to Deepika in the film.

A source close to Preity Zinta has reacted to these rumours. Talking to a leading publication, the source said, “Not true at all”.

Continuing, the source let on,


There is no official word on the casting of the Satte Pe Satta remake. It remains highly tentative at the moment. Farah Khan had recently said that the team will be making an official announcement regarding the entire cast and crew soon. So, let’s wait and watch.
