Madhuri Dixit stepping

day after reports of Madhuri Dixit stepping into Hema Malini's shoes for the remake of Satte Pe Satta opposite Sanjay Dutt, she is eager to see what changes have been made to the character in the script before she signs the dotted line.

Speaking from Denver on her 44th birthday, Madhuri said, "A remake of Satte Pe Satta sounds good. Let's be fair. The movie was made 29 years ago. It can't be the same. I'd like to see what changes have been made before I agree to do the film. They've told me they'll send the script. I'm waiting for it."

Another problem is that Madhuri Dixit-Nene has just returned home to the US and is in no mood to return to Mumbai in a hurry.

She said, "Through Jhalak Dikhla Jaa I was able to connect with the younger generation who had not seen that much of my work. It was a trip I will cherish. But now I am back here with my family. And I'd like to spend some time with them. So I don't really know when I'll return to India."

Sanjay Dutt...

It has been heard that Madhuri Dixit is considering being a part of the 'Satte Pe Satta' remake to be produced by Sanjay Dutt. Back in the US now, the dhak-dhak girl enjoyed her television stint while she was at it and is seriously considering doing some good work in India from time to time.

It can be remembered that Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt were a couple in Bollywood and a romantic liaison between the two was largely speculated. However, when Sanjay found himself on the wrong side of the law, Madhuri decided to nip whatever might have been in the bud itself.

Director of the Satte Pe Satta Soham Shah has upset Sanjay Dutt. The director recently made an announcement that Madhuri Dixit would play the female lead opposite Dutt in the actor's co-production with Shree Ashtavinayak.

The film in question is the Satte Pe Satta remake and the actor is upset because Madhuri was never approached by the producers and Aishwarya Rai and Kajol were the first choices for the role originally played by Hema Malini in the 1982 flick.

A source maintains, "Kajol was Sanju's first choice. But she had a baby last year and Sanju didn't want to put her in a fix. If not Kajol, his choice was always Aishwarya Rai, never Madhuri Dixit. Ash was approached for the role but had date issues. During this time, two other names came up for consideration Rani Mukherjee and Karisma Kapoor."

At this point, Soham suggested Madhuri. Apparently, he wanted to sensationalise his project. Adds the source, "It was Soham who made the declaration without informing the producers. He told Ashtavinayak that Sanju was fine with Madhuri and told Rikku (Madhuri's secretary) to announce on her birthday that she is doing the film."
Says the source, "Soham had a fallout with Karan Johar after Kaal. He approached Ajay Devgn with the same script and later went to John Abraham with it. That's why none of Soham's actors have worked with him again except Sanju, who gave him another chance after Luck.

But now Sanju is upset, too." A director, who Sanju is currently working with, says, "Soham should just concentrate on his script and not sensationalise on someone's past affairs. The script should be the hero, not the big stars in it."
