The movie would be directed by David Dhawan, if rumours are to be believed.
Sohail is currently in the process of buying the rights for the film. The original was inspired by a Hollywood flick Seven Brides For Seven Brothers.
Sohail confirms to a daily, "Yes, I am in talks with Mr Raj and Romu Sippy and we are working on acquiring the rights of Satte Pe Satta. We have talked and also met regarding that. Satte Pe Satta is one of my favorite films and was a neat, clean family entertainer. I am very excited about it though it will take another 10 days to finalise everything."
Talking about the cast Sohail says, "Despite it being a multi-starrer, Bachchan was the only lead; the others were supporting cast. Here, too, it will be the same. Salman will be essaying a double role - the characters of Ravi and Babu." So, Sohail will also be one of the other six brothers?
"No, I have decided that I will opt out of this one as an actor. Producing Satte Pe Satta will be a mammoth task. We will have to look for seven actors, seven actresses and then the villains. It will be a huge film. We will be signing on friends and people we have worked with for the rest of the cast as we need to be comfortable with the people we work with."
When asked if David Dhawan was helming the remake, he says cautiously, "Nothing has been finalised at the moment."
