A source reveals, "Even before Super 30 released, Farah had initiated talks with Hrithik about the "Satte Pe Satta remake. The two have been close friends over the years and were waiting for the right project to collaborate together. While Hrithik has already opened up about being part of it, he will soon sign on the dotted line. Currently negotiating with Rajesh Vasani of a movie marketing firm regarding the 1982 film's rights, Farah and producer Rohit Shetty are optimistic about the turn of events, and are hoping to roll with the redux version in December.

It appears to be raining remakes in Roshan's backyard. Buzz in trade circles is that Sajid Nadiadwala — who was one of the producers of Super 30 — has approached the actor for the remake of the Tamil hit, Veeram (2014). "That apart, another leading studio that recently collaborated with Hrithik is looking at a second outing with him," adds the source.
