Our source reveals, “Riteish Deshmukh is more or less finalized to play the part made famous by Mithun Chakraborty in the Agneepath remake which Karan Johar intends to produce under his banner. After Hrithik has not shown much keen interest in playing the gangster Vijay Dinanath Chavan in the film, chances are Abhishek Bachchan will step in to play the role which was originally played by his father Amitabh Bachchan. Both Riteish and Abhishek share great chemistry which was evident in Bluffmaster and one just hopes the same magic is recreated."
The source further adds, “The actresses to play Madhavi and Neelam"s parts are yet to be finalized. Similarly for playing the villain Kancha Cheena originally played by Danny, names of Vivek Oberoi and Irrfan Khan are being considered."
