Deepika Padukone and Farah Khan Kunder are rumoured to be finalised for Farah Khan's next film, which is a remake of Satte Pe Satta, produced by Rohit Shetty.

A source told a leading daily, "Both Farah and Rohit wanted Deepika Padukone in the movie because not only do they love her but she fits the role to the T. When DP debuted, everyone felt she had an uncanny resemblance to Hema ji in terms of her beauty as well. When Farah narrated the story to DP, she loved it and instantly gave her nod."

If the speculation is to be true, the trio Farah Khan, Rohit Shetty and Deepika Padukone will be seen together for the third time after Om Shanti Om, Chennai Express and Happy New Year while it will be the first time Deepika and Hrithik will be seen together. It is also reported that Deepika gave her nod as soon as Farah narrated the story to her.

On the work front, Deepika has recently wrapped up the shoot of her next film Chhapaak, while is filming for Kabir Khan's 83 in London with husband Ranveer Singh, while Hrithik Roshan is currently gearing up for the release of his film Super 30.

The original film saw Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini in lead roles with Amjad Khan, Ranjeeta Kaur, Sachin, Shakti Kapoor and more in pivotal roles.
