Karan Johar Dreams Of Making Agneepath A Hit
Versatile Filmmaker Karan Johar who is set to make the remake of 1990 release Agneepath, the movie that was made under his father Yash Johar`s banner revealed that it is his dream to make the movie hit worldwide and fulfilling the wish of his father.
"My decision to remake `Agneepath` is purely an emotional one. And I am glad that I am as passionate about the film as my father was. I want to make this film again in memory of my father and I will make sure I get it right commercially," Karan was quoted as saying at the ongoing Dubai International Film Festival.
"It was a film my father was most proud of. When we were making the film, we all believed it`s a film that would redefine our company (Dharma Productions)...It was a commercial failure and it broke my father completely. I don`t think he recovered from it ever," the filmmaker added.
This time around, today’s heartthrob Hrithik Roshan will be portraying the iconic role of Vijay Dinanath Chauhan which was earlier played by the superstar Amitabh Bachchan.
For the movie Mr. Bachchan received the National award but it terribly failed at the box office.
Karan Johar, famously known as the romantic filmmaker further added that this time he will definitely bring the hit tag to the film.
"We will never match the brilliance of Mukul Anand, we will never ever match the brilliance of Mr.Bachchan. We cannot compare to that kind of a genius combination. I hope we will come up with a film `Agneepath` that at least will have a hit tag attached to it. It`s my dream, my endeavour," Karan said.
