Hrithik Roshan walks out of YRF’s ‘Thug’?


Bollywood hunk Hrithik Roshan might walk out Yash Raj Films’ upcoming film titled ‘Thug’, reports suggest. The action-packed movie is expected to go on floors this month and will be directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya who worked with the ‘Bang Bang’ star in ‘Dhoom 2’.

A report in Bollywood Life quoted a source as saying, “Hrithik isn’t yet on board this project. The film is going to have a huge budget and he wants to make sure the script is in its right place. A lot of focus has been on the special effects so he is worried that the story and plot might take a back seat.”

Hrithik is starring in epic adventure-romance film ‘Mohenjo Daro’ helmed by Ashutosh Gowariker. It is also a big budget film. The actor seems to be apprehensive and wants to wait and watch how ‘Mohenjo Daro’ performs when it releases.

“Hrithik has told producer Aditya Chopra that he is not fully convinced to be a part of ‘Thug’. He wants to see how ‘Mohenjo Daro’ fares at the box-office and then take a decision.”

It is also said that the reason behind the actor’s decision to walk out is that Deepika Padukone has said no to the project. ‘Thug’ is said to be an adventure flick on the lines of ‘Mission Impossible’ and the film will also feature megastar Amitabh Bachchan.

Meanwhile, Hrithik’s ‘Mohenjo Daro’ starring Pooja Hegde and Kabir Bedi among others is slated to release on August 12.
