~*~Abhishek's dream role grabbed by Hrithik Roshan~*~
Abhishek Bachchan will have to take a backseat as itís not him; but Hrithik Roshan, who will fill in the famous shoes of Amitabh Bachchan as Vijay Dinanath Chauhan, in the remake of Agneepath.
Directed by Karan Malhotra, a long time associate of Karan Johar, the film was long in talks with Hrithik Roshan being considered as the leading man for this cult classic, which propelled Amitabh Bachchan into super -stardom.
Recently, a lot of rumours were doing rounds as to who will star in the lead, as talks were on with both Hrithik and Abhishek Bachchan.
It was reported that Agneepath was one of Abhishekís favourite films and he would love to fill in the shoes of his dad. Abhishek also mentioned, it was his dream to play one of his fatherís characters and Agneepath was perhaps the best offer he could have expected.
And so, the producers approached Abhishek; as Hrithik who was the original choice, was unable to take up the role due to lack of dates.
But in a recent development, Hrithik has put Vishal Bharadwajís film on-hold, and gave a go ahead to Agneepath. Thereby, ending all hope for Abhishek Bachchan to follow in his dadís footsteps.
Hrithik will start shooting for Agneepath, after Sanjay Leela Bhansaliís Guzaarish, thereby postponing Vishal Bharadwajís film, which by the way was scripted specifically for Hrithik.
A 1990 blockbuster, Agneepath; was directed by Mukul S. Anand and produced by Karanís father Yash Johar. The remake will be directed by Karan Malhotra one of Joharís trusted lieutenants.
