No comparisons between Big B and me -- Hrithik
When asked how he was feeling about doing the remake of Big B’s hit film, Hrithik expressed, "In my mind, there are no comparisons, because Agneepath for me, is just another film."
"There's no manipulation and calculation. I reacted to the script instinctively and related to it without a thought for the original Agneepath. And there is no effort to do things differently, but just convincingly," the star added.
Talking about his experience of shooting for Karan Johar’s ‘Agneepath’, the actor revealed that he has never worked as hard as he did for this film.
Hrithik stated, "I don't think I have worked this hard in my entire life...I feel like I have been steamrolled, I must be getting old. I was dragged on my back and chest. I had ice packs on my knees and elbows and returned home black and blue. I have a zillion scratches and bruises on my stomach.”
Bebo refuses to turn an item girl for KJo’s ‘Agneepath’
While the item songs are on rise in B-town these days, Kareena Kapoor, out of the blue, turned down the offer to sizzle on an item track in the big-banner film ‘Agneepath’.
It is being believed that the reason behind Bebo’s refusal to turn an item girl for Karan Johar’s forthcoming film ‘Agneepath’ is her not so good relations with the lead stars of the film, Hrithik and Priyanka.
While Priyanka is Bebo’s rival, who dated her ex-beau Shahid Kapoor, Hrithik is the actor with whom the hottie was linked up in the early phase of her career.
As such, Kareena has not one but two good reasons to decline the item track proposal from the eminent filmmaker and friend Karan Johar.
Speaking about Bebo’s refusal, a source said, "It was a tough call for Kareena. She certainly didn't want to refuse KJo who is a very close friend. But she did."
Bebo doesn’t wish to follow Piggy Chops’ footsteps
Another reason behind Bebo rejecting the item song in KJo’s next may be that the bombshell doesn’t wish to follow Piggy Chops’ footsteps, who recently agreed to turn an item girl for the former’s upcoming film ‘Ra.One’.
Apparently, the item song for which Kareena was approached might have been a part of the scene that occurs in the villian’s (Sanjay Dutt) hideout.
When asked about KJo’s reaction on Kareena’s refusal, a source, as quoted in the TOI, stated, "Karan is a thorough professional. He understands the intricacies of Bollywood. He has taken it very sportingly.”
KJo postpones ‘Agneepath’ for buddy SRK
Scuttlebutt has it that filmmaker Karan Johar has postponed the release date of his imminent movie ‘Agneepath’ to next year, to avoid a clash with buddy Shahrukh’s ‘Ra.One’, which is all set to hit the screens on Diwali this year.
Talking about the film’s release date being rescheduled, an insider said, “Both films have generated a lot of buzz and are considered among the most-awaited films of the year. Releasing them so close to each other would’ve opened them up for comparisons with each other and Karan has smartly avoided a clash of interests. Besides, Agneepath is yet to complete, while SRK’s film was ready much before.”
