After being roped in for playing a character of a Prince in Ashutosh Gowariker's Mohenjo Daro, Hrithik Roshan may be seen as playing one of the most iconic characters of Johnny Depp ' Captain Jack Sparrow' in his next, titled as Thug.

A source informs DNA, "YRF is working on two action dramas- Thug and Dhoom 4, both directed by Victor. The story of Thug is kept under wraps as Hrithik begins shooting for it from January next year. It's a fantasy film, set against a fictional historical setting, and revolves around the adventures of a dashing pirate captain (Hrithik) and his crew."

"Hrithik's character is something like Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) and what he plays in the Pirates Of The Caribbean (POTC) series. As Aditya Chopra has made a successful franchise of the Dhoom series, the idea is to make a Thug series if the first one is successful."
