Mumbai: After a hiatus of five years, the hit jodi of ‘Krrish’ - Hrithik Roshan and Priyanka Chopra are all set to come together on the silver screen for the remake of ‘Agneepath’.
Produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, ‘Angeepath’ will be directed by debutant Karan Malhotra where Hrithik will play the lead role of Vijay Dinanath Chavan.
Talking to a news daily, a source said, “Priyanka has been taken onboard to play the lead role played by Madhavi in the earlier film. Karan finds Priyanka apt for the role and approached her with the script. Priyanka said yes in a blink and is playing the lead opposite Hrithik.”
“Priyanka and Hrithik will be coming together onscreen after almost five years. While Hrithik will be playing Amitabh Bachchan’s role, Priyanka will be essaying his nurse- girlfriend role, played by Madhavi in the original. Both complement each other on screen.”
Incidentally, the original was produced by Karan Johar’s father Yash Johar. “Little minor changes will be made in the script, making it modern, keeping the plot more or less the same. However, the dialogue will be the same, penned by Kader Khan. The character played by Mithun Chakraborty has been totally done away with in the remake,” added a source.
