If promos of AGNEEPATH are any indication, it is quite apparent that the characters look and behave quite differently when compared to the way Amitabh Bachchan and Mukul S Anand had approached the original film. If Hrithik is seemingly subdued when compared to the full-on attitude persona that Amitabh Bachchan had brought on screen, even Sanjay Dutt is remarkably different from Danny Denzongpa.
"Believe me, Sanjay Dutt too admits that with AGNEEPATH, he has been challenged like never before," says Karan, "Every actor looks forward to this kind of acting challenge once in a while and he is ecstatic to be playing Kaancha Cheena here. The way he has deconstructed himself as an actor is remarkable. He is so thrilled and didn't blink even once when he had to take his eyebrows off for the role. His very look is so menacing that it would be a treat for the audience." CHECK OUT: Is Priyanka Chopra the next 'rockstar' in the making?
On the other hand one also tends to question whether the presence of Priyanka Chopra is worthy enough in the film. After all, the character played by actress Madhavi hardly had any contribution to make in yesteryear's AGNEEPATH which leads one to speculate if we can expect a better deal for Priyanka?
"Priyanka's love track here is completely different from what we had seen in the original AGNEEPATH. Right from her character to the look, everything is different. Trust me, in male dominated film like AGNEEPATH, she will leave a solid mark. There could have been no one else but her who could have played Kaali (name of her character) so convincingly," says Karan.
