Recently, there were reports that Hrithik Roshan was approached for the remake of The Burning Train. Now the grapevine has that the rumours are baseless and the actor is not at all keen on working in any remake or a two-hero film, unless and until it is a project like his last outing War. Below is all you need to know about the same.
In the recent past, many speculations were rife that Hrithik Roshan is doing the remake of Satte Pe Satta to be directed by Farah Khan. Also later Jackky Bhagnani announced his next production, the remake of The Burning Train and it was said that he is aiming to cast Hrithik.
Now according to a report in Bollywood Hungama, a source close to the development has rubbished the rumours of him being a part of both the films. The source said, “All the filmmakers who are close to Duggu (Hrithik Roshan) know he doesn’t want to do remakes. He did one remake Agneepath (of Amitabh Bachchan’s film). That’s it. After that it’s a firm no to all remakes.”
Further talking about Satte Pe Satta remake and how he rejected that as well even after it was being directed by the close friend Farah Khan. “And that was to be directed by a close family friend Farah Khan. Duggu went to lunch to Farah’s place when she invited him. Farah made the offer. Duggu was too polite to say an outright no. It took quite a while for Farah to get the message. No remakes!” said the source.
The source added, “Duggu hasn’t even been approached for The Burning Train. Wasn’t the original a big flop? And wasn’t it a two-hero project featuring Dharmendra and Vinod Khanna? Why would Duggu do a two-hero film? Who does two-hero films these days? Unless it’s Yash Raj’s War where Duggu and Tiger are like two-halves of one whole, can’t be made without both.”
Meanwhile, Hrithik Roshan’s last two outings including Super 30 and War have turned out to be massive hits. The actor is now gearing up for the sequel of his superhero franchise Krrish. There were also reports that the actor is also looking for international projects.
