Reportedly, this film is a remake of Christopher Nolan"s acclaimed hit, The Prestige. It was also speculated whether who would be producing the film along with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Bhansali"s last film was a co-production with Hollywood giant Sony Picture Company. Our industry sources claim, the Hrithik-aishwarya starrer is a 50-50 joint venture between Bhansali and UTV. Now incidentally, Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Bachchan"s last film together, Jodhaa Akbar was also a UTV production.
Reportedly, Salman Khan is miffed with Bhansali and has vowed never to work with him again. Reason being, it was his idea to the bearded maker to remake the Hollywood dark thriller, but Bhansali kept him in the dark and began the project with Hrithik instead.
