If Hrithik Roshan is eagerly awaiting the release of Agneepath, he is equally keen to show the film to the original Vijay Dinanath Chauhan, Amitabh Bachchan.
"I think once the film is ready for previews, he will be the first person we will call," said Hrithik who reprises Amitabh's role in the Agneepath remake. The original, directed by Mukul Anand, came in 1990 and Big B had won a national award for his performance in the movie.
While the original Agneepath was produced by Yash Johar, the remake is being financed by the late filmmaker's son, Karan Johar.
At the same time, he is also excited about Sanjay Dutt's villainous role in the action thriller and claims that Kancha Cheena will be the next big villain in Bollywood. "If you are an actor, you want to do all kind of roles. Kancha is one of the best roles and also one of the best performed roles. There was one Gabbar Singh, there was one Mogambo and now one Kancha Cheena," the 38-year-old said at a promotional event held at a McDonalds outlet for Agneepath.
Hrithik also said that this remake of the original 1990 film may not be as stylish as the original, but is definitely entertaining. "Agneepath is a very simple and a hard-hitting film.I have seen the film, so I can say that it is quite entertaining," he said.
Besides promoting Karan Malhotra-directed Agneepath, which releases Jan 26, Hrithik is also working hard on his fitness for his father's Krrish 3.
