Hrithik Roshan as Vijay Dinanath Chauhan in Agneepath remake?

According to Mumbai Mirror, a local daily, Hrithik Roshan could soon be seen portraying the legendary role of Vijay Dinanth Chauhan in the remake of the 1990 disaster Agneepath.

Although the film, produced by Yash Johar’s Dharma Productions, failed at the box-office when it released, Amitabh Bachchan won a National Award for his performance. Now, according to reliable sources Karan Johar is very keen to remake the film and wants none other than Hrithik Roshan in the lead as Karan feels he is just about perfect for the role.

Karan Malhotra, one of Karan Johar’s assistants will be directing the film.

If Hrithik does decide to do the film, the comparisons to the legendary Bachchan will be inevitable. Shahrukh Khan wasn’t universally accepted as the Don, will Hrithik be accepted as Vijay Dinanath Chauhan? Is Abhishek Bachchan a better choice?

  • tis is a bad idea Hrithik does not suit to be Vijay Dinanath Chauhan.
    I thnk Ajay Devgan fits the bill or may be Viveik Oberoi too…
    may b they can do a sequel to Agneepath…

  • even though Hrithik is better actor role does not show any compatibility with him.
    Instead Abhishek will have suitable voice and he can copy Amitabh at great level.
    At the end of movie Guru, he was delivering dialogues just like in Amitabh’s voice.
    Also, for Rohini Hantangadi’s role (Suhasini Chauhan) Kiran Kher will be best suitable person.

  • I think when u remake one movie must not copy everything in the film.
    Hrithik will make Agneepath at great level and more INTERESTING coz his personality, body langunge and attitude different with Amitabh.

  • just like late Heath Ledger as the Joker in Batman film the dark knight , in the begining every body was or had some fear of giving him the role of the Joker specially which was once done by Jack Nicholson, but when the movie came out Heath Ledger was the best Joker ever made , he outcomed Jack Nicholson, so lets see what Hrithik Roshan can give us by playing an iconic role, in these roles you can know if the actor is good or not.
