Why did Hrithik Roshan turn down Hamlet?

Yes, the honey-eyed actor was approached for the desi version of Hamlet but not by director Vishal Bhardwaj

Besides Vishal Bhardwaj, director Tigmanshu Dhulia is also adapting Hamlet on the big screen. While Bhardwaj’s film is titled Haider and stars Shahid Kapoor in the lead, Dhulia was excited to cast Hrithik Roshan as Hamlet in his film. However, we hear the Krrish 3 actor backed out from the project after hearing the first draft. Apparently, the talented actor found the whole story about a son seeking revenge for his father’s death similar to his 2012 hit Agneepath. Our khufiya khabroo says Jr Roshan wasn’t keen on playing a similar character and hence opted out from the film. However, there are no grudges between the two and they may soon come together for another project.

We loved Hrithik as the new angry young man in Karan Johar’s remake of Agneepath and wouldn’t mind if he played a similar role again. But as an actor there is always a chance of getting typecast, so we totally understand your call Duggu!
