Hrithik’s Agneepath postponed!

Posted by on July 6, 2011 0 Comment

Hrithik Roshan’s Agneepath has got a new release date. The film has been postponed to January 13, 2012.

Producer Karan Johar explains the delay, saying, “I decided to postpone the film because we were fighting timelines. I didn’t wish to stress Karan Malhotra, the director remaking this cult classic. We have been having very gruelling schedules. I didn’t want to spoil anything for Karan and his crew by asking them to hurry through it. I have seen parts of the film, and what I saw blew my mind. That’s the reason why I want to nurture it and give it the dream release it deserves. I believe anything done in haste ends up a waste. Agneepath is very special for us.”

Is the remake Dharma Productions’ gift to Hrithik, who celebrates his birthday on January 10? “When I postponed the film, the thought didn’t strike me,” says Karan. “I guess it is a happy coincidence that Agneepath will release a couple of days after his birthday.”

The trade says that 2012 will be a defining year for Dharma Productions because the banner will have five releases in all, including Agneepath. Karan confirms, “2012 will be our biggest year yet. I intend to release the untitled Kareena Kapoor-Imran Khan film. Then there’s Student Of The Year, which I am directing. We also have Ayan Mukerji’s film with Ranbir Kapoor, and Punit Malhotra’s next release after I Hate Luv Storys.” Buzz has it that Punit will repeat Imran as his leading man in this film as well.
“Watch this space,” Karan teases, “you’ll know soon enough.” TOI
