Hrithik Roshan has turned down director Karan Malhotra’s film for Karan Johar’s Dharma Production all over again. This is the second time Hrithik has said no Karan Malhotra. Earlier he turned down the director’s proposed literary adaptation Shuddhi after much deliberation. The film had to be eventually shelved.
Sources say Malhotra and Karan Johar had this time gone to Hrithik with an “out of the box” comedy featuring Hrithik in a double role. But after much negotiation Hrithik decided against doing a double-role comedy With Judwaa being the big double-role fare of 2017, perhaps Hrithik wanted to stay away from that space.
Refusing to comment on the films he has declined Hrithik says, “At the moment I have not signed any new film. I am looking at what to do next.” Incidentally Aditya Chopra had planned Thugs Of Hindostan with Hrithik who wanted to start work on it after completing Kaabil.
“But Adi Chopra didn’t want to wait. So he went to Aamir Khan. But now look at destiny. Kaabil is over. But the shooting of Thugs Of Hindostan has still not started,” says a source.
