The magnificent Big B and his magic in ‘Agneepath’ refuse to go. After the success of Dharma’s version of Mukul Anand’s bollywood take on ‘Scarface’ starring Hrithik, reports of makers approaching Abhishek Bachchan for the title role in another version of Agneepath is doing rounds in the industry.
Sources claim that it won’t be a complete remake and will have innovations in the sub plots while the basic concept will be kept untouched.
Abhishek Bachchan who has clearly denied to step into his father’s immortal character of ‘Vijay Dinanath Chauhan’ was not available for comment but certainly there are some makers in the industry who are dreaming to ‘cash’ on the Agneepath phenomenon and are eyeing Abhishek Bachchan in the title role..
Ironically ‘Agneepath’ when released in 1990 got critical acclaim and saw Big B in one of his most iconic avatar but the movie failed to meet its box office expectations.
