Karan Johar, the producer of the upcoming and much-awaited flick Agneepath, has narrated that no one can even dare to copy Amitabh Bachchan’s style and no one can emulate the style Amitabh played portraying Vijay Deenanath Chauhan in the original 1990s film of his father Yash Johar.
Johar stated that though he and the director of the film Karan Malhotra created Vijay Deenanath Chauhan character in the remake of Bachchan’s Agneepath giving it to Hrithik to play but they did not try to copy the utter style of Bachchan. He mentioned that they just took the core of the character. Hrithik Roshan is playing the character of Amitabh Bachchan in the movie.
Karan Johar further stated that original Agneepath was not the biggest blockbuster but it got the commercial values and through the dialogues, Amitabh spoke, the movie got hugely popular later.
Johar has been making the film an utter commercial by putting all kinds of spices to lure the audiences. He roped in Katrina Kaif to do the specially arranged item number in utter 70s, 80s bar style where Katrina does the jhatkas with pava hitting to her waist. The song has already become the apple of all listeners turning a chartbuster.
Now he inked a deal with a pizza company to launch a pizza on the song ‘Chikni Chameli’. The pizza is all set to be launched and soon the ads will start rolling on the channels. Agneepath will hit the screens early next year in January 2012.
