Kareena-Shahid or Aditya-Shraddha - Who Will Star In Sadma’s Remake?

By 16:32:00

The casting for Sadma’s remake is under speculation since the film has been announced. Lloyd Baptista, who is making his directorial debut with the remake, however, is unhappy with rumours of the film being shelved; post Kareena Kapoor Khan’s walk-out from the project.

The ad filmmaker, who has directed stars from SRK and Hrithik Roshan to Ranveer Singh and Kareena in ads, has bought the South film rights and will also produce the film in English with a Hollywood star cast.

As per a popular daily, now, Baptista has new pairing on his mind. And that narrows down to Kareena with Shahid Kapoor or rumoured lovebirds, Aditya Roy Kapur with Shraddha Kapoor.

Said a source associated with the project, “The idea is to get a good actress who is beautiful too. You can’t just put any actress there. While Lloyd discussed the subject with Kareena, she evinced interest as she loves Sridevi but he was yet to narrate the script to her. In fact, when he had asked Kareena if she would do the film with Shahid she said there wasn’t any problem and if the script was good she would do it.”

The source added, “Vidya Balan was never approached. Lloyd’s wish list is Shahid-Kareena or Aditya-Shraddha. Apart from a great actress, he wants a great actor to play Kamal Haasan’s role. While the film will be the remake of Sadma, the makers are planning a twist in the tale, after the train scene when Nehalata goes away forever.”

So what the director has to say about these speculations? “All details of the film shall come out soon. This is a very big film and I want to do full justice to its remake. Neither Vidya Balan nor Ranveer Singh were approached for the film. Casting for the film is in progress and the names will be revealed after being locked,” Llyod said.
