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, 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.
