Remember Sanjana from Main Hoon Na? We are talking about Amrita Rao whose performance won several hearts. The actress had collaborated with Farah Khan for Main Hoon Na which is like one of the most entertaining films we had seen. The actress who was interacting with media at an event expressed her desire to collaborate with Farah again. For those unversed, Farah is working for her next which is a remake of cult classic Satte Pe Satta and the actress expressed her wish to work with Farah again.
“I would love to work with Farah (Khan) again. In fact, I would like to work with all the directors I have worked in the past because they are such amazing directors. But when it comes to saying yes to a movie, I have always gone by my first instinct and my first reaction to the script. After that, I have certain comfort parameters that I stick by. ‘Satte Pe Satta’ is a fabulous film. It’s almost like “The Sound Of Music” of Hindi cinema. I would love to be a part of a film like that,” Amrita told the media.
Well, ever since Farah Khan announced that she will be collaborating with filmmaker Rohit Shetty for the remake, many were keen as to who will feature in the remake of the classic, which originally starred Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini. According to an entertainment portal, Hrithik Roshan had been approached for a major role, but the latter denied it straight away calling it a rumour.
Amrita Rao who is best remembered as Payal Mehra from 2003 hit Ishq Vishk spoke who could play the new-age Payal. The original film starred Shahid Kapoor opposite Amrita. For those who are not in the know, there are reports that the makers of Ishq Vishk are keen to produce a sequel of the film.
“‘Ishq Vishk’ is such an emotional film for me. I found my place in the film fraternity thanks to that film. I am very excited for ‘Ishq Vishq 2’ because I know that the audience loved the first film,” she said.
She added: “I think Sara Ali Khan could be the new-age Payal (the character she played in ‘Ishq Vishq’). She has that charm, innocence and yet that x-factor and spunk so, she would be a good choice for the role of Payal. As far as playing Shahid’s (Kapoor) role is concerned, I feel Ishaan (Khatter) would be a good choice. I don’t see anybody else in Shahid’s place except for Ishaan. I think they will make a good pair, too.”
