Llyod Baptista's 'Sadma' remake has grabbed a lot of attention for its casting speculations. Earlier there was news that Vidya Balan will act Sridevi's role, however later, it was revealed that the actress was never approached for this role.
Now the latest scoop we hear is that the director is keen on casting either Aditya Roy Kapur-Shraddha Kapoor or Shahid Kapoor- Kareena Kapoor Khan in this flick.
A DNA report quoted a source close to the project saying, "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 furher 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.”
Meanwhile when Lloyd was asked about the casting he quipped, "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."
Let's wait and see who will bag this film finally!
