Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan has worked in many blockbuster movies in his film career. Big B is known for his excellent acting. A movie Satte Pe Satta is also included in the list of his blockbuster movies. The premiere of this film has been 40 years old and even today this film is included in the list of people’s favorites. Hema Malini, Shakti Kapoor, and Sachin Pilgaonkar were seen in leading roles with Amitabh Bachchan in Satte Pe Satta, directed by Raj Sippy. But do you know that Hema Malini was not the director’s first choice for this film? I wanted to cast another actress for this film.
Hema Malini was chosen for Satte Pe Satta thanks to Amitabh Bachchan. It was he who suggested the name of the actress to the director. According to media reports, Raj Sippy wanted to cast Rekha along with Amitabh Bachchan in this film. But at that time, because of the relationship between Rekha and Amitabh, there were a lot of issues that Rekha couldn’t be a part of this movie. If this had not happened, then fans of Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha would have seen each other in the movie.
Parveen Babi’s name was suggested after Rekha was able to be a part of the film. But by then she too had distanced herself from the movies and said no to the movies. When the actress could not be found, Amitabh Bachchan suggested the name Hema Malini. Hema Malini had said yes to this film.
We told you that Hema Malini was pregnant during the filming of Satte Pe Satta. She shot this movie while pregnant. I used to shoot very carefully. Two months after the film’s release, Hema Malini gave birth to Esha Deol.
