Hrithik Roshan’s loss is Saif Ali Khan’s gain?
Reportedly, the Bullet Raja actor has bagged the role that was earlier supposed to be essayed by the Krrish 3 star
Now, this is something we strongly refuse to believe, simply because there can’t be any comparison between the two actors – Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan in terms of style, substance, acting, charm…whatsoever! According to a newspaper story, Kabir Khan and Hrithik Roshan were supposed to work together in a film, but reportedly the honey-eyed actor made Khan wait for a ‘considerable’ amount of time which irked the filmmaker to no end and he apparently had no choice but to replace the lead actor of his film.
It’s learnt that after Ek Tha Tiger, Kabir was excitedly looking forward to start work on his next biggie but little did he know that his lead actor Hrithik – who’s super busy with Karan Johar’s Bang Bang and his home production Krrish 3 – would spoil his plan. Unlike other B-town stars, Roshan is known to be quite organised and committed. But things seemed to have gone wrong this time around.
So now Kabir has requested his producer Sajid Nadiadwala to opt for another hero and we hear they are thinking of roping in the Chote nawab in place of Hrithik. Uff! Nadiadwala, who’s producing films like Heropanti and Highway, is also said to be working on Salman Khan’s Kick, and he can’t afford to waste any more time on this project waiting for Hrithik endlessly. The movie is reportedly all set to go on floors in October this year.
Considering Saif’s repertoire of films releasing this year, we don’t deny that the actor is in demand, but that doesn’t put him in Hrithik’s league. So why then did Kabir Khan take this risk, and will it pay off? Will Saif be able to step into Hrithik’s big shoes and live up to the challenge? What do you think BollywoodLifers?
