Katrina Kaif to play Hema Malini’s double role in Seeta Aur Geeta remake
The actress apparently is very fond of the original movie starring Hema Malini. According to sources, at one point of time, she even harboured intentions of producing the remake.
According to rumours, Ramesh Sippy, who directed the original film, will also helm the project but his son-director Rohan Sippy denied the news. “Dad is not directing the movie,” he said.
Industry insiders say that the makers are apparently so happy with Katrina Kaif’s interest in the project that they have given her a free hand at selecting the team she wants to work with. Another source says, “The rights are not with Sippy as there is a dispute between the Sippy brothers regarding it. Ramesh could be directing it but only after he wins the rights.”
Apparently, Katrina Kaif and Sippy’s banner are now busy working out details of the project. Both the senior Sippy and Katrina were unavailable for comment.
