Rumours are circulating fast and furiously in trade circles that Hrithik Roshan’s Agneepath is no longer being distributed by UTV. However, there is no truth to the stories because, according to producer Karan Johar, “As of now, the film is being distributed by UTV on commission basis. And that is the whole truth.”
It is Karan’s other film, Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu, starring Kareena Kapoor and Imran Khan, which has been part-sold by UTV. Karan and UTV are joint producers of the Kareena-Imran starrer and by virtue of being 50% owners of the film, UTV took in Appu (of Nagpur) as a 50% distributor.
