Mumbai: Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar heaped praise on actor Hrithik Roshan saying he would be apt to play a superhero on screen.
The ‘My Name is Khan’ helmer hopes to see Hrithik in the avatar of a different superhero, donning the green costume and carrying the deadly bow and arrow of the infamous vigilante ‘Arrow’.
‘Arrow’, an American television series developed by writer/producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, and Andrew Kreisberg, is based on the DC Comics character Green Arrow, a costumed crime-fighter created by Mort Weisinger and George Papp.
The 43-year-old director along with Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt are co-curators of Viacom18's English entertainment channel.
"As ‘Arrow’ I think Hrithik Roshan is the perfect superhero, you can make him do anything. So be it Arrow, or be it any other kind of avenger, he would be amazing," Karan was quoted as saying in a statement here.
Hrithik has played the role of a superhero in ‘Krissh 3’.
Karan and the ‘Jodhaa Akbar’ protagonist share a great equation. Hrithik acted in remake of ‘Agneepath’, produced by Karam while Karan had filmed him in ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham’.
The two were going to work on ‘Shhuddhi’ but things did not move ahead.
‘Arrow’ will premiere on August 23.
