It is known that Farah Khan, who has always insisted that female directors do not have to necessarily helm women-oriented projects, is all set to collaborate with Rohit Shetty for “the mother of all entertainers”. The duo announced it in February that Rohit will be bankrolling a film, to be directed by Farah, under his banner. Ever since then, rumours have been rife that Farah and Rohit will be remaking the iconic 1982 film, Satte Pe Satta, which originally featured Amitabh Bachchan in a double role, along with Hema Malini and Amjad Khan. In fact, it was reported that casting for the film is underway.
Interestingly, we now hear that not just Satte Pe Satta, Farah is keen on remaking two other Hindi films as well, namely Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi and Hum. What's more? A report in a leading daily suggests that Farah will be working on all three remakes, one after the another. Amidst all this, Farah reacted to the report by mentioning in on Twitter, "not true.. well.. partly true."

Now we wonder what she means by her cryptic message. Well, only time will tell.
Meanwhile, Farah had shared her excitement on working with Rohit and had earlier said in a statement, "Sometimes the universe just conspires to give you what you didn't even imagine. Together with Rohit, who I genuinely love as a brother and whose work ethic I respect and share, I can only promise 'Mother of all Entertainers'! Can’t wait to say 'roll camera' for this one."
