Hrithik Roshan to act in Tom Cruise’s Knight and Day remake?

If the chinwag is true then Shahid Kapoor has lost yet another big production!

A long time ago, international production house Fox Studios had announced plans to remake Tom Cruise-Cameron Diaz-starrer Knight and Day in Hindi, starring Shahid Kapoor with Siddharth Anand as director. After releasing a few photographs of the Teri Meri Kahaani actor with Anand (director of Anjaana Anjaani), we never heard anything new about the project. Except that one-time when the director and the star actor were spotted with Bipasha Basu ‘coz she was being considered to play Diaz’s part.

Anyway, the taaza khabar from Fox Studios is that Hrithik Roshan is now set to replace Shahid Kapoor. Why? Because Sasha had two back-to-back dud films namely, Mausam and Teri Meri Kahaani. We are glad that Shahid will no longer be part of the remake of a mediocre Hollywood action drama that had nothing exciting to start with. But losing out on a big production isn’t a good sign for the young rising star, no? Remember Shaks has already walked out of Yash Raj Films’ upcoming project helmed by Maneesh Sharma citing date issues? However, that’s another story ‘coz we hear that dates are not the real reason why the TMK actor isn’t doing the film.

Coming back to the desi version of the videsi action flick, a li’l birdie tells us that the jobless superhero of Krrish 3 – now called HRo by near and dear ones, and not Duggu – has accepted the film, and the makers are pursuing Katrina Kaif for the leading lady’s role.

If the Ek Tha Tiger babe agrees to do the film, we think it will be Hrithik and Kat’s chemistry – somewhat explored in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara – that will make the lackluster story of Knight And Day shine for Bollywood buffs! Don’t you agree?
