Filmmaker Karan Johar is smart and witty alright, and he even knows how to work his way around when he casts his eye on someone for a particular role. In the case of Agneepath for instance, he was particularly adamant on casting Hrithik Roshan and couldn't stop pursuing him.  Karan pushed Hrithik to agree to his suggestions and pursued him. Mind you, Hrithik had categorically denied.

Yesterday, as the movie clocked 7 years of its release, lead actor Hrithik Roshan reminiscing of the same, shared on social media and even wrote about how Karan didn't stop trying and Hrithik finally agreed.


Sharing a video of the iconic poem penned by Harivanshrai Bachchan along with stills and glimpses from the film, Hrithik Roshan shared, "Agneepath gave me the opportunity of going all guns blazing. Rarely does a script come along which warrants the actor to risk everything. Including his bones. Those are the kind of roles I look for. Otherwise I’m just the laziest guy. I was shooting for ZNMD in Spain when Karan Johar sent Karan malhotra to narrate the script inspite of me very vehemently turning down the idea of a remake of the classic.
.He was right.
.Cause after I heard the narration, I just couldn’t say no. .
Rest is history.
.Had some fun while meditating on the poem today with my phone. .
And right now all I want to do for the rest of my life is action movies. .
