Off late, there were also reports about Darsheel is venturing into television; however, the 22-year-old actor said that he is not that keen on doing television as of now. “Again, to be very honest I don’t think I will do TV now because I am focusing on theatre right now. While doing theatre, I am advancing my acting skills. I get to learn so many new things. It’s been almost 3-4 years, I am into theatre and I am really enjoying it. This medium is helping me a lot and so as of now TV can wait.” (smiles).

We tried contacting Nakuul Mehta too, however, he remained unavailable to comment on it.

Talking about Satte Pe Satta, in the original film released in 1982, Amitabh has six brothers and they were played by actors like Shakti Kapoor, Sachin Pilgaonkar, Paintal, Kanwaljeet Singh, Vikram Sahu, and Sudhir.

The female lead is also yet to be finalized. So far, names of actresses like Katrina Kaif, Anushka Sharma and Deepika Padukone are doing the rounds in the news opposite the male lead.
