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?
