Dharma Productions ‘Agneepath’ is an official remake of the olden day’s blockbuster. Hrithik Roshan played the character of Dinanath Chauhan which was earlier played by Amitabh Bachhan. So it was a great challenge itself for Hrithik. In an interview the actor said, “Yes, extremely nervous and empty. Playing Vijay Dinanath Chauhan somewhere depleted me I guess. I needed something to fill me up again before I started ” Krrish 2“. I was afraid that if I didn’t get that pat on the back, my next journey would become extremely tough and burdened. Anyways all that is history now, I’m all fuelled up and ready for the biggest challenge yet again.” Bollywood queen Priyanka Chopra also did her job marvelous. Though this movie was very much male dominated, but Priyanka still manages to stun audiences by her outstanding presence. Audience also liked Sanjay Dutt’s negative role as Kancha.
