KJO pays tribute to his father with 'Agneepath'
Hrithik Roshan-Priyanka Chopra-Sanjay Dutt starrer Agneepath has set the Indian Box Office on fire with its' record breaking collections on the opening day of its' release. The film is still doing an excellent job at the box office and experts in the industry believe the movie would go on to break many more records.
Just a day before the release of Agneepath, Karan Johar had revealed that it was his Late father Yash Johar’s dream to remake the 1990 cult classic by same name! Probably his dad was heartbroken seeing the result of his film at the box-office!
Bollywood had never been able to entertain audiences with the remakes but the 39-year-old Karan Johar’s ‘Agneepath’ has left everyone flabbergasted. He has given Bollywood industry the biggest opening ever in the form of ‘Agneepath’ and the producer now insists that it is a tribute to his father, Yash Johar, who produced the original ‘Agneepath’ back in 1990.
Karan Johar's remake of his father's 1990 film Agneepath has garnered an astoundingly positive reception. The original ‘Agneepath’, which featured Amitabh Bachchan as Vijay Deenanath Chauhan, remained quite famous among the youth but the film failed at the Indian box office, which everyone perhaps doesn’t know.
However, the new ‘Agneepath’, released on January 26, 2012, broke recent opening day box office records, garnering Rs.25 crore. The collections have left behind figures of hits like 'Bodyguard' and 'RA.One', which made Rs.22 crore and Rs.18 crore, respectively. Therefore the delighted produce is now happy, as he thinks he has done justice to his father.
Karan Johar told to the reporters, “It’s my own revenge to the audience. Own son avenging his father’s flop (Laughs).
It’s strange thing that in perception Agneepath is not a flop. Only trade knows it. There are few films like Lamhe and Agneepath world doesn’t acknowledge as a failure. Youth loved it virally on videos and DVD world.”
He further ads, “I think we made this film is a big thing it’s a tribute to my father. It’s a special film for us it was not an easy task. To make a cult classic it comes with a lot of expectations and baggage.”
The new ‘Agneepath’ has featured superstar Hrithik Roshan as Vijay Deenanath Chauhan and Sunjay Dutt as Kancha Cheena. Meanwhile, Rishi Kapoor has played another negative role in the movie and former Miss. World Priyanka Chopra has been shown as Vijay’s love (Kaali).
The movie already had a lot of hype among the audiences, especially after Katrina Kaif’s item number ‘Chikni Chameli’ was launched.
