New Delhi: The star cast of ‘Agneepath’ including Hrithik Roshan, Sanjay Dutt and Priyanka Chopra were seen promoting their upcoming movie in Gurgaon on Monday.
While addressing the press conference, Hrithik, denied claims that he is emulating Amitabh Bachchan’s portrayal of Vijay Dinanath Chauhan in the film.
“If you are going to enter the theatre to compare me with him (Amitabh Bachchan), I am going to lose in probably the first five seconds, because first of all I am not as tall. But it was refreshing for me to hear a subject that could have been interpreted like this as this Vijay (character name) is in deep contrast and very very simple. He is younger, simple and it’s a very plausible and a very real character,” he said.
Sanjay Dutt also elaborated on his role as ‘menacing’ ‘Kancha Cheena’, which was earlier played by Danny Denzongpa.
“The character was very challenging for me. I really felt happy and enjoyed a lot enacting it on screen,” he said.
The movie has been produced by Karan Johar under the banner of Dharma Productions and is directed by Karan Malhotra.
The much-hyped film has reportedly fetched a whopping Rs 41 crore for its satellite rights, the highest ever in the history of Indian cinema.
The movie is set to hit the theatres on January 26.
