Hrithik was approached for the untitled ‘Pink Panther’ project for the role of ‘Vicente’? Will he make a crossover move?

Casting for the latest installment of ‘Pink Panther’ continues to keep making news; especially so since there seems to be great curiosity about Bollywood stars featuring in the film. Nevertheless, the latest development while casting for the film comes as an absolute surprise; something which was unanticipated and unprecedented. That’s because this time around, none less than Hrithik Roshan has been approached for ‘Pink Panther’. Confirms Hrithik’s spokesperson from Hollywood, “Yes, it is absolutely true that Hrithik was approached for the untitled ‘Pink Panther’ project several weeks ago. This was for the role of ‘Vicente’ in the film.” The next obvious step would be Hrithik to make a true crossover and start working on the project, right? “Wrong, after careful consideration, Hrithik decided to pass on the part,” says the spokesperson. Now this sounds even more surprising than the actual announcement itself! Why would Hrithik turn down a role which could have got him instant international recognition? Isn’t it an excellent good opportunity that has been let go? After all ‘Pink Panther’ has its own cult following. “Of course, there is no denying any of this. But then there are a lot of factors involved that come into play before one signs on a dotted line. Add to it the kind of career high that Hrithik is enjoying currently and his first international project has to be chosen quite carefully”, she says, “However, even his not playing the part of ‘Vicente’ in the film doesn’t take away from the fact that Hrithik is a huge fan of Steve Martin. He is definitely hoping for future opportunities to work with Mr. Martin.” Meanwhile there is tremendous buzz building up in international arena for Hrithik Roshan. The bankable star-actor currently makes the cover of publications such as Los Angeles Times. In addition, on various occasions he has also featured in ‘Hollywood Reporter’. Icing on the cake comes from the statement which was recently made by one of the most credible Hollywood agents. He commented, “Hrithik is the Sun & the Moon all by himself!”
