Hrithik eager to show Agneepath to Big B
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.

Wishing Rasha Zayed a very happy and prosperous birthday. Peace and well being be around you always .. Love
There is now a complacency of thought and deed within. A resignation that seeks freedom. Freedom to say do and act in whichever way, for the transcendence of peace and tranquility. These are philosophic qualities and may seem to be too pseudo in compartment. A pseudo intellectualism, often the harbinger of envy, dislike, skepticism and immense ridicule from those that have been troubled by its presence.
But to put it in simpler terms, the ecstasy of deriving at the right chord, either through voice or instrument, must needs be the ultimate deliverance. A deliverance that has often been referred to being of saintliness and divine, but deliverance all the same. There is the need to spend time with our own self, to allow it to fester inside us and trouble us with its disease, hopefully incurable. Being within is no crime. It may seem so socially, but in the end it does possess you and leaves you immensely lifted and fulfilled. I feel and felt that this morning as I ran through my work on the desk with the notes and chords and instruments all adding their flavor to my presence. It is not as though it just came on, it was desired and willfully so. I do believe being in the company of the studio last night with musicians and sound, did have a profound effect on me and I wonder if it is not too late to pursue what comes within me so strongly – music learning or language or betterment of the soul through both these.
One shall allow the soul to prevail and guide me in whichever direction it wishes me to.
I must turn in now. There are some medical procedures to be followed tomorrow and they need a rested body. Nothing alarming but in preparation for something in case it turns out alarming.
Good night till then .. and shall bring you the results of all this by the morrow ..
