Mumbai: Two days ago the first official trailer of the new ‘Agneepath’ remake was released. The fans had been waiting to get a first look of the classic remake. And ever since it came out, Sanjay Dutt’s bald avatar has been the talk of the town!
Sanju is playing the character of Kancha Cheena, the role of a villain in the remake. In the original version this role was played by Denny Denzongpa.
His look in the film has been inspired by Marlon Brando`s Colonel Walter Kurtz in the 1979 ‘Apocalypse Now.’
Actor Hrithik Roshan will be playing the lead role of Vijay Dinanath Chauhan, which was originally essayed by the Big B in the 90’s classic.
When contacted by a daily, director Karan Malhotra conceded that Brando`s look had been on the back of his mind while edging out Sanju’s character.
“I must admit that I`m in awe of that look for sure, but Sanju sir has taken the next step forward.”
He also added that the actor went by his vision completely.
He also stated, “Sanju sir is not the kind of person who interferes. He goes by what the director says, and I`m lucky to have an actor who goes by the graph of his character and the movie.”
“Agneepath’ is expected to hit release later this year and its first theatrical trailer will be officially released with ‘Ra.One’ this October.
