Over 6 feet tall, deep voice, perfectionists, excellent actors in their respective genre of acting... and that's where the similarities end. Being offered a role previously acted by Amitabh Bachchan, a legend of Indian cinema is surely a scary experience. Anyone would be doubtful to take it up. Hrithik Roshan is no exception.

Like the rest of us, Hrithik grew up watching Amitabh act in different roles.

Acting in the remake of his film, with a comparison bound to occur, can be a strong motivation to say 'NO'. And that's what he said to Karan Joher, the producer of AGNEEPATH when it was first offered to him. But Karan Johar did not give up to Hrithik's denial, asked him to 'At least hear it'.

Karan Malhotra, the director, was asked to go to Spain and narrate the script to him, with a belief that Hrithik wouldn't refuse after hearing about it. Hrithik, the ever considerate and a person who hates waste of time felt guilty about his denial for a movie to his friend Karan and with the director, travelling all the way to Spain for a three hour talk.

As Karan Malhotra started narrating the story, it started drawing Hrithik into its charm. An actor who is known to demand a retake of the shoot if it is not up to his satisfaction, who constantly while on break during shoot continues to rehearse the scenes in mind, had no trouble in imagining this as a future hit.

A story inspired by a real individual and geographical basis (Mandva) and same names, after all, who can ever forget 'Vijay Dinanath Chauhan' and 'Kancha'?

The change in Vijay's journey and his completely different character treatment, made Hrithik attract to enact in the story completely. Adding his personal touch and the instincts which have made him a super star, it just took Hrithik precisely 5 minutes to say a 'YES' to act in the movie.

A challenge is now what is before Hrithik Roshan... and so let's wait for Hrithik Roshan to come on screen with his Vijay Dinanath Chauhan persona, for the year's most awaited AGNEEPATH.
