Rakeysh Mehra has been hunting for the right actor to play the lead in his upcoming project Delhi 6. First, he approached Abhishek Bachchan, then Hrithik Roshan. Since both of them refused to take up the part, owing to their busy schedule, Mehra turned to Akshay Kumar.
Akshay, who was shooting in Sydney then, refused to take up the part. However, a source said that Akshay had not even been approached for that part, as the script demanded someone much younger than him. And finally, rumours of Rakeysh Mehra approaching Hrithik once again are taking the rounds! Reportedly, Hrithik has agreed to do the film. But that is provided Rakeysh incorporates the changes he has suggested.
As sources have it, Mehra met Hrithik again last week to discuss the script once again. There were certain segments in the script Hrithik wasn't happy with. So Mehra was obliged to make those changes, after which Hrithik finally gave him the green signal.
Hrithik, who already has two movies this year- Kismat Talkies and Jodhaa Akbar, has yet another project in his kitty now. Delhi 6 is speculated to go on floors by the end of this year.
