Hrithik Roshan has been linked to a number of Bollywood remakes recently including ‘The Burning Train’ and ‘Satte Pe Satta’, however, not much positive has come out of either project.
If rumours are to be believed, Roshan is no longer interested working in remakes and would rather focus his energies on original films.
A source was quoted in a leading daily saying, “All the filmmakers who are close to Duggu (Hrithik) 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.”
The source also spoke about the ‘Satte Pe Satta’ remake, which he has reportedly turned down. The source added, “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!”
It concluded, “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.”
