Mumbai: Karan Johar wants to leave no stone unturned in remaking Hrithik Roshan starrer ‘Agneepath’ as great as Amitabh Bachchan’s original flick.

Buzz has it that two-time Oscar nominated Hollywood make-up artist Robin Slater has joined Karan Johar and will be closely working on Hrithik Roshan`s look, which will be very different from Amitabh Bachchan`s in ‘Agneepath’.

Slater will design the new look for both Hrithik Roshan and Sanjay Dutt in the remake.

Apparently, Slater is not new to Bollywood. Talking to a daily, a source said, “Robin has known Karan for some time now. She also worked on SRK`s look in ‘My Name Is Khan’. To design a special look for Vijay Deenanath Chauhan`s character and that of Kancha Cheena`s played by Hrithik and Sanju respectively, Robin was
chosen again.”

Slater is currently in Mumbai and is working on Hrithik`s and Sanjay`s looks, which is kept under wraps.

When contacted, Karan Malhotra, the director of the film confirmed the news and said, “Yes, Robin Slater is on board.”
Robin Slater has been associated with numerous Hollywood smash hits, including ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’, ‘Just Married’, ‘Planet of The Apes’ and ‘The Grinch Who Stole Christmas’.
