Sanjay Dutt LOVES THE ORIGINAL AGNEEPATH
Though the cult film of the 90’s having the most talented slot of star cast , where in Big B plays the iconic Vijay Dinananth Chauhan , Danny the perfect Kanch Cheena and the very talented Mithun Da , did not create a storm at the Box Office , the remake has raised the eyebrows and gauged eyeballs !
Producer Yash Johar’s son, Karan has remade the film in the same name now starring Hrithik Roshan and Sanjay Dutt. It has already created quite a buzz, unlike the original.
Sanjay Dutt , in his recent interview said that , Mukul , the director of the original , was brilliant in his work and was ahead of his times . He also added that he lived with the performances by Amitji , Mithun Da and Danny .
Although the remake would have new actors reprising the iconic characters again, except for the basic plot of revenge, the new Agneepath has a different story. “The premise is same. Vijay Dinanth Chauhan, Kancha is there…the revenge story where Vijay comes to Mandwa is same. It is a revenge story but the setting is totally different. It is very grounded film here Kancha wears dhoti, kurti and kolhapuri footwear and Vijay is also a simple man. (Karan Malhotra has made it as a very real grounded and rustic film,” Sanjay said.
The new Agneepath also featuring Priyanka Chopra is up for release on January 26.
Hrithik was scared to take up Vijay Dinananth Chauhan
Hrithik Roshan , who steps into the shoes of Big B with Agneepath , says that he was really scared to take up the role . Initially , when the role was offered to him , he right away said “ No “ . But then , when he read the script , he was blown away . This is the toughest character he has played till date , he says . He has his own style of potraying Vijay Dinananth Chauhan , and is very different from the character that was potrayed by Mr . Bachchan .
He also says that once the film is ready for previews , he would call up Amitabh Bachchan to see the film . He was all praises for Amitji’s performance . Mr Bachchan had also won an National Award for his performance . Hrithik , is just too excited with Agneepath’s release .
