Hrithik Roshan's upcoming projects are in bit of a soup. Sanjay Gupta's untitled next is already facing copyright issues and the much-written about leading lady hunt is reportedly on too, with no luck of course.
And now, sources have suggested that the suave star is not too keen about Vijay Krishna Acharya's "Thug" and could walk out of the project any day.
"Hrithik isn't yet on board this project. The film is going to have a huge budget and he wants to make sure the script is in its right place. A lot of focus has been on the special effects so he is worried that the story and plot might take a back seat," Bollywood Life quoted an insider as saying.
The source further revealed that the actor isn't convinced about the plot of the action-thriller in question and that he would take a call on whether or not to be a part of it after observing "Mohenjo Daro" box office performance.
This could put the makers in a tight spot as he had postponed the film trying to manage dates for his home production (to be helmed by Gupta). "The film was to start in January 2016, but now will start only in April. Hrithik wanted to prepone his dad Rakesh Roshan's home production directed by Sanjay Gupta as he loved how the script has developed," a source told DNA last year, according to the web portal.
In other news, "Thug" is said to be inspired by Johnny Depp's Jack Sparrow of "Pirates of the Caribbean" and will be shot in a massive ship at the YRF studios, Mumbai. The star is currently busy wrapping up Ashutosh Gowariker's period drama "Mohenjo Daro", which is slated for a 12 August release.
