Alia Bhatt and Parineeti Chopra for Sadma remake

The Sridevi and Kamal Haasan starrer 1983 classic, ‘Sadma’s remake was announced a few months back and has been in news for its changing star cast. Earlier it was reported that Kareena Kapoor has been approached to reprise Sridevi’s role in the remake, but because she was busy with ‘Ki & Ka’ at the moment, she couldn’t take it up. And recent news suggest that these two young actresses are now in competition to play Sridevi in the remake.


Directed by ad-filmmaker Lloyd Baptista, the movie might now have either Alia Bhatt and Parineeti Chopra in the lead role. According to reports, the screen tests are scheduled some time soon. Says a source, “Lloyd is in India for a few days to finalise the cast of ‘Sadma’ remake and the biopic on entrepreneur Kalpana Saroj. He will do the screen test of both Alia and Parineeti before taking a call.”


The original film was directed by Balu Mahendra and featured Sridevi and Kamal Haasan in lead roles. Even though the film failed at the box-office, it achieved a cult status and is still considered as one of the best roles of Sridevi’s career.

We wonder who gets picked between the two actress now. Who do you think will reprise the iconic role better? Parineeti or Alia? Tell us in the comments section below.
