In the present crop of Bollywood actors, Hritik is often tipped to
be the one to make his mark in Hollywood. But Hritik reportedly
walked out of Vishal Bhardwaj's untitled English flick starring
Hollywood beauty Uma Thurman, as he was not satisfied with his
role. This would have been his first international project.
Ostensibly, Hritik, smug after the mega-success of Krrish
and Dhoom 2, was wary of doing a film where Thurman would
hog the limelight. He understood that the producer and the director
would like to use Uma as she is an international star. He also
would have had to postpone the shooting of dad Roshan's Krrish
3 for the project.
Nowadays Hritik has become fastidiously stringent regarding the
choice of his films. He has already turned down offers from Zoya
Akhtar and Rakyesh Mehra, and now it is Vishal's turn.
hasen't taken offence for the reported turndown by Hritik, and
acknowledged the latter's feelings that the role for him in the
film was not substantial enough. Now, the grapevine has it that
Ajay Devgan could be the choice for the project. Vishal also
asserted that the film has not been shelved, and the hunt for a
suitable actor opposite Uma will continue, till the time she
reverts with her dates.
