The Hema Malini starrer Seeta-Geeta is one of the most successful “double-role” Bollywood films. There were talks of making a remake by the Sippy family but for some legal problem among family members, the idea was shelved. But now things are sorted out and GP Sippy’s son Suresh will produce the remake with Katrina Kaif in the lead, reprising Hema Malini’s role.
Katrina Kaif is gung-ho about the film because she has always wanted to do a double-role and was waiting for the right of script. She has gone through the script and is quite excited about doing the film. As for the guys, Abhay Deol and Akshay Kumar have been considered for the role of Sanjeev Kumar and Dharmendra, but they have to still give their consent. The director is also to be decided although there is speculation that Dibakar Banejree has been chosen to give a dark twist to the film, and make it a black comedy.
