The progress of Sanjay Dutt's much talked about project SATTE PE SATTA remake, which was a bit slow, has now, it seems, gained momentum. Some time back it was held that Karisma Kapoor, who is making her comeback on the silver screen after a hiatus, will be stepping in the shoes of veteran actress Hema Malini for the remake. And now the latest development is that Omi Vaidya of 3 IDIOTS fame is all set to play the youngest brother (Shani) which was essayed by Sachin Pilgaonkar in the original.

Omi confirms about his role in the film, "I have signed SATTE PE SATTA remake with Sanjay Dutt. I'll play the youngest brother which Sachin Pilgaonkar had played in the original. Hopefully I'll do justice to the role."

Omi is super excited about his new role. "It's a good script with good people on board. They have given me a nice role," says an elated Omi.

However the shooting of the film is delayed for reasons unknown. Omi reveals, "We were about to begin the shoot however it got delayed a bit."

The 1982 hit film SATTE PE SATTA, which starred Amitabh Bachchan-Hema Malini in the lead, is a story of seven brothers which was directed by Raj N Sippy. While the original had Amitbah Bachchan playing the eldest brother, in the remake Sanjay Dutt will essay Big B's role.

It looks like Omi Vaidya is quite 'Chatur' in picking up projects!
