New Delhi: B-town's hottest and most charming actor Hrithik Roshan was last seen in the blockbuster film,'Kaabil' which was directed by Sanjay Gupta. The film was released in January alongside Shah Rukh Khan's film, 'Raees' and became a super hit. Now, 'Kaabil' is all set to get a Hollywood remake as the director confirms this news that 20th Century Fox has approached Hrithik for the rights.
Sanjay said, “It’s true that Fox, through Tomas Jegeus [president, Fox International Productions], has approached Hrithik. Even though the developments are too premature to talk about at this moment, it is an honour for the team. What is also exciting is that Kaabil has been declared the best film of [the first half of] 2017 via an online poll. So, it’s a double win for us.”
As per an insider's information, “Before he jetted off to New York, Hrithik was pleasantly surprised to get a call from Tomas, who wanted to buy the remake rights of Kaabil. They feel the film is a pure entertainer and has all the ingredients for a great Hollywood film. Hrithik will discuss the matter with his father when he is back.”
Rakesh Roshan happily expressed “The screenplay was hard-hitting, and the drama, gripping. It would make for a wonderful Hollywood adaptation, given that it has all the necessary emotions. It struck gold at the box-office because it was about a visually-impaired lover seeking revenge.”
