Aishwarya to play Sanjay Dutt’s wife in 'Satte Pe Satta'

If all goes according to plan then we will soon get to see Aishwarya Rai Bachchan playing Sanjay Dutt’s wife in the classic remake of ‘Satte Pe Satta’. Sanjay is keen to have Ash on the board as he feels she suits the role well. It was even rumored that the makers have approached Vidya Balan for the role.

"We don't know how the rumour started that Vidya Balan had been signed to play Sanju's wife in Satte Pe Satta. Nobody even approached her. Dutt is extremely keen that we sign Aishwarya to play the female lead opposite him. He is adamant that only Ash fits the role. The actress is keen on the idea of doing the film if everything else works out," a source informs.

"The script writer along with the director of Satta Pe Satta, Soham Shah, will fly down to New Zealandnext week to give her a story narration. Ash is holidaying there with husband Abhishek, who is shooting in Wellingtonfor Abbas-Mastan's Players, along with Sonam Kapoor," the source added.
