Why is Ashutosh Gowariker upset with Hrithik Roshan?

The Jodhaa Akbar director is disappointed about losing out on the opportunity to cast the Krrish actor for his period film

Ashutosh Gowariker, who recently announced his mega ambitious love story set against the backdrop of the ancient cities of Mohenjo-daro and Harappa, was very keen to cast Hrithik Roshan in the film. But little did he know that the honey-eyed actor has his diary full with other film commitments.

Hrithik has been keeping super busy with his home production Krrish 3 which is now in its final stages. Post that, he has allotted his dates to Siddharth Anand for the official remake of Hollywood flick Knight and Day with Katrina Kaif titled Bang Bang, the shooting of which is scheduled to start early next year in Kashmir.

Now, if our feathered friend is to be believed, Gowariker is sort of feeling let down with Hrithik for not being available for his period drama, considering the actor was his first choice. Buzz doing the rounds is that the National award winning filmmaker is considering other actors to step into Roshan’s role because the actor will be shooting extensively in five countries for Anand’s action-thriller and won’t be able to accommodate Gowariker’s film. We are sure Hrithik is equally upset for not making it to Gowariker’s epic drama.

So now who could be Ashutosh’s second choice? Which actor do you think could fit into Hrithik’s shoes? Abhishek Bachchan? Or younger heroes like Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh? Watch this space to find out!
