Mumbai: If Karan Johar rejoices in taking the mantle from his late father Yash Johar for remaking ‘Agneepath’, Abhishek Bachchan is wallowing for not being able to succeed his illustrious father’s footsteps of playing Vijay Deenanath Chauhan in the same.
Buzz has it that ever since Hrithik gave his nod for playing Vijay’s character in ‘Agneepath’, Abhishek is quite upset for losing the coveted role of Vijay Deenanath Chauhan, for which Amitabh Bachchan won a National Award.
Talking to a daily, a source said, “‘Agneepath’ is Abhishek’s favourite film and he has watched it many times. So, when it was announced that Hrithik would play Amitabh Bachchan’s role, everyone thought Abhishek would not take it well.”
“Apparently, during the shooting of ‘Koffee with Karan’, where Abhishek had come with his wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Karan asked a question during the rapid fire round about how Abhishek would dress if he had to go for a masquerade party. Incidentally, the same night Hrithik had thrown a party. So, Abhishek said that he would go as Vijay Deenanath Chauhan and give tips to Hrithik about how he should play the role.”
Even as Karan remained unavailable for comments, Fazila Allana, the head of Sol Production, which produces ‘Koffee with Karan’ said, “You will have to watch the episode. I do not want to say anything.”
Hmm…it seems Abhishek Bachchan is just not happy with Hrithik Roshan.
