Hrithik Roshan, who recently made headlines for being approached to play the lead in the next installment of popular Hollywood dance flick, "Step Up", has reportedly denied signing any such project.
Roshan who is currently busy promoting his upcoming film, "Bang Bang", has only signed Ashutosh Gowariker's "Mohenjo Daro" as of now. The actor plans to start shooting for the film, once "Bang Bang" releases next month. Apparently, the actor known for his dance moves and Greek God looks is in no hurry to sign new films.
"I'm looking to do something edgy and different. I feel I'm more at ease with taking risks right now. Apart from Ashutosh's film (Mohenjo Daro), I haven't signed anything else." the actor told The Hindustan Times.
"At the moment, he is only doing Ashutosh Gowariker's next, which is a period film. Once Bang Bang releases, he plans to start doing the research for Ashutosh's project," the actor's friend confirmed.
The rumor of Roshan featuring in "Step Up 6", however, didn't come as a surprise to the actor, as this not the first time such thing has happened. Considering the fact that actor has a huge fan following in Hollywood too, such rumors are bound to spread, especially when it comes to the dance flick.
"He isn't surprised either, because this isn't the first time this has happened. Every time a dance-based film makes news, Hrithik's name invariably crops up," added the friend.
Meanwhile, Roshan is all set to make it huge with his upcoming action thriller "Bang Bang". Directed by Siddharth Anand, the film has garnered overwhelming responses from the audience with its recently released trailer and songs.
Roshan's dance moves has already created waves among his fans who are eagerly waiting for the flick to release. The film also stars Katrina Kaif as the lead actress and Jaaved Jaffrey, Danny Denzongpa and Pavan Malhotra in pivotal roles.
"Bang Bang", official remake of the Hollywood film "Knight And Day" starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz, is all set to hit the theatres on 2 October.
On the other hand, Roshan's next, "Mohenjo Daro" is a mega project and has a massive budget. The period film is a love story set during the ancient Indus Valley Civilization. The project is slated to go on floors by October, and the first schedule will apparently take place in South Africa.
