    Much as Hrithik Roshan’s fans would love to see him play Vijay Dinanath Chauhan in producer Karan Johar’s remake of the Amitabh Bachchan classic Agneepath, Hrithik has refused to do the film. Abhishek Bachchan has stepped into his father’s big shoes to play the iconic character.

    Hrithik has politely informed Karan that he doesn’t want to be a part of the remake, while Abhishek is only too glad to be doing it. An industry insider reveals, “Abhishek has said in many of his interviews that Agneepath is his favorite film. Naturally, he was overjoyed when Karan asked him to play the role which his father has originally played. It has always been Abhishek’s dream to do once what his father has done in his career, and he sees Agneepath as the perfect opportunity.”

    But why did Hrithik turn down the offer? The insider adds, “Hrithik was a tad apprehensive about stepping into Big B’s shoes. Moreover, Karan too had second thoughts after he had approached Hrithik for the role. Besides, Hrithik had date problems. He will soon be busy with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Guzaarish and since Karan plans to start shooting the film in early 2010, Hrithik suggested that it would be wise for Karan to go ahead with another actor.”
