Reportedly there were rumours that Hrithik Roshan will be playing a pirate in Vijay Krishna Acharya's 'Thug' which is touted to be a big-budget action-cum-love story. However now we hear that the film has been postponed.
A report in DNA quoted a source as saying, "The film was to start in January 2016, but now will start only in April. Hrithik wanted to prepone his dad Rakesh Roshan’s home production directed by Sanjay Gupta as he loved how the script has developed. Thug is said to be inspired from Johnny Depp’s character Jack Sparrow from the Pirates Of The Caribbean series and will be shot on a specially-constructed ship at YRF Studios.”
Currently Hrithik is busy shooting for Ashutosh Gowariker's 'Mohenjo Daro' opposite Pooja Hegde. He also has Kabir Khan's untitled film.
