The "Mohenjo Daro" debacle has taught Hrithik Roshan a few lessons. The superstar is now opting for tighter scripts, which seem to be working with the audience these days.
Hrithik apparently walked out of both "Thugs of Hindostan" and "Fighter" because his demands weren't met. While the general word is that he charged a bomb for the roles, after which he was shown the doors, the real reason seems to be different.
For both "Thugs of Hindostan" and "Fighter," Hrithik wanted the stories to be worked upon and the scripts changed a tad. After the makers disagreed to do so, he bowed out of the projects, Firstpost reported.
"Thugs of Hindostan" now features Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan, and Yash Raj Films is yet to finalise the female lead.
"Mohenjo Daro" was Hrithik's comeback to the silver screen after a gap of two years, and there was a lot riding on the period-film. However, for several reasons it failed to work its charm at the ticket window. And now, Hrithik is trying all he can to chart the perfect comeback.
Will "Kaabil" be his first blockbuster since "Krrish 3"?
"Kaabil" is a differently-packaged love story, in which the protagonists â€“ Hrithik and Yami Gautam â€” are visually-impaired. The Sanjay Gupta-directed film is said to be a smooth blend of action, love and thrill.
"It was absolutely crazy action. I enjoyed myself so much. The blind have such sharpened sensory perceptions. I had to fight like any visually impaired person and not like Hrithik Roshan," Hrithik elaborated when asked about the type of action one can expect in "Kaabil."
The film is scheduled to be released on Jan. 26, 2017, alongside Shah Rukh Khan's "Raees." Will Hrithik outshine SRK at the box office? Time will tell. But going by the recent showdown, where Akshay Kumar's "Rustom" totally over-shadowed "Mohenjo Daro," shouldn't Hrithik be playing safe?
