Previously we posted that producer Karan Johar approached actor Hrithik Roshan to play the role of Vijay Dinanath Chauhan in the remake of 90’s Amitabh Bachchan starrer Agneepath. But, Hrithik refused to do it and finally the role went to Abhishek Bachchan and so Abhishek is excited to put into the shoes of his dad. Many times Abhishek said in his interviews that Agneepath is one of his favourite films, so he is naturally overjoyed to do the film.
A source revealed, “Abhishek has said in many of his interviews that Agneepath is his favourite film. Naturally, he was overjoyed when Karan asked him to play the role which his father has originally played. It has always been Abhishekâ€™s dream to do once what his father has done in his career, and he sees Agneepath as the perfect opportunity.”
However Hrithik turned down the offer due to his busy schedule. Hrithik soon will get busy with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Guzaarish, so he said to Karan to go ahead with some other actor.
