Hrithik Roshan and Priyanka Chopra in his upcoming remake of Agneepath, which he will produce.
The movie will have Hrithik reprising the role of the angry man immortalized by Amitabh Bachchan in the original film by Mukul Anand. Priyanka, however, will not play a nurse, Big B’s love interest in the original played by Madhavi. There have been rumours that Priyanka’s character has been changed from a nurse to a prostitute, but Karan Johar denies it.
What he confirms emphatically is that there’s going to be a smouldering chemistry between Hrithik and Priyanka in the film.
“The new 'Agneepath' is first and foremost an intense love story. There was love between Priyanka and Hrithik in 'Krissh'. But here we want an unparalleled intensity between them. You've never seen Priyanka and Hrithik get so intense with anyone before,” Karan Johar is quoted as saying by a news agency.
The original film, made in 1990, was produced by Karan’s dad Yash Johar.
