For sometime now, speculations have been rife that the remake of the critically acclaimed 'Sadma' has been shelved after Kareena Kapoor confessed that she isn't a part of the project.

However, Himanshu Jhunjhunwala, the spokesperson for the film says that these rumours are not true. "There's no truth in the stories doing the rounds. Neither has Kareena turned down the project nor has the film been shelved. We aren't saying that Kareena is on board nor are we saying she has rejected the film. I would request journalists is to at least confirm with us or the director before filing any rubbish."
It is learnt that even the reports of Vidya Balan being approached to essay the role played by Sridevi in the original film were false. Speaking on the matter, director Lloyd Baptista says, "This is a very big film and I want to do full justice to its remake. No decision shall be rushed. The names will be revealed after being locked."
Sadma remake will be made both in Hindi as well as English. The casting for the Hollywood project is also on.
