The suspense is over! Karan Johar has finally finished the script of the new-age Agneepath, the cult film that won Amitabh Bachchan a National Award for his brilliant performance as Vijay Dinanath Chauhan. While Karan is yet to take a call on its casting, he has finalized the director of the film, Karan Malhotra, who was the associate director in My Name Is Khan, will be directing the film.
Karan Johar confirms the news, "Yes, Dharma has green-lit the remake of Agneepath. But it's not a scene to scene remake of the original that was produced by my father [Yash Johar]. It's an adaptation and restructured version of that film, which has been penned by Karan Malhotra along with two more writers."
There is talk around that Karan has already approached Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor for the principal roles, but he denies it. "We were waiting for the script to get completed. The next step would be to approach the actors. However, we haven't approached anyone yet," Karan sets the record straight.
