After "Katti Batti", director Nikhil Advani is set to direct another film "Bazaar", which might have Hrithik Roshan as the lead actor.

However, Advani, who is completing the final draft of the film, said that Hrithik has not been finalised for the role yet.

"Hrithik was never confirmed for Bazaar. We only had one small hour-long conversation about the film. I am still completing the final draft," PTI quoted Advani as saying. 

Considering Hrithik's hasn't given his approval yet, it looks like he isn't sure of the film. 

Speculations are being made that after Advani's two flop films – "Hero" and "Katti Batti" – Hrithik might not agree to work with the filmmaker and thus, has put the project on hold.

But the director clarified: "It's not true.. we are working on the final draft of the script." 

Is Hrithik hesitating to sign the film or is Advani really yet to complete the draft?  Only time will tell.

Meanwhile, Advani might also be having second thoughts after taking Hrithik's "Mohenjo Daro" remuneration into consideration.  

According to reports, Hrithik has demanded Rs 50 crore for Ashutosh Gowariker's film, which is half the film's budget. With this, Bollywood's Greek God is on a run to become the highest earning B-Town star.

The actor is presently busy shooting for the period drama, which itself is in news since the beginning. He is also in news due to a passionate love making sequence with actress Pooja Hegde in the film. 

After "Jodha Akbar", this will be Roshan's second project with Gowariker and the film is slated to be released on 12 August, 2016.
