Everything turned ugly due to miscommunication between the producer and director of the film. Sanjay Dutt wanted Kajol to play the female lead but since she delivered a baby last year, his attention shifted to Aishwarya. Unluckily, Aishwarya too couldn't give her dates. So, he was considering casting Rani Mukherjee or Karisma Kapoor.
At this critical juncture, director Soham suggested Madhuri. Sources said that he told the actress' secretary to announce on her birthday that she would act in Satte Pe Satta remake. This has upset Sanjay Dutt, as he thinks that the director should have consulted the producers. He said that they haven't sent the script to Madhuri and that they are still waiting for Aishwarya to give the nod.
Well, it's 'wait and watch game' for now, as the makers of the film seem to be confused!
