Hrithik Roshan has some interesting films in the pipeline! Buzz is that the handsome hunk is be donning a different avatar for 'Mohenjo Daro' and 'Thug'.
Rumours has it that Duggu will be playing the role of a pirate in Vijay Krishna Acharya's 'Thug' which is touted to be a big-budget action-cum-love story. A report in DNA quotes a source as saying, "YRF is working on two action dramas- 'Thug' and 'Dhoom 4', both directed by Victor. The story of 'Thug' is kept under wraps as Hrithik begins shooting for it from January next year. It’s a fantasy film, set against a fictional historical setting, and revolves around the adventures of a dashing pirate captain (Hrithik) and his crew. Hrithik’s character is something like Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) and what he plays in the 'Pirates Of The Caribbean' (POTC) series. As Aditya Chopra has made a successful franchise of the Dhoom series, the idea is to make a Thug series if the first one is successful. Hrithik is excited about playing a swashbuckling pirate, something he hasn’t done before. He has been sitting through various look tests with Victor and Adi. The shooting of 'Thug' will begin from January next year.”
The daily further quotes a source as saying, "The first schedule is a lengthy one- 150 days- after which, more than half of the film is expected to be ready. The lead actress opposite Hrithik is being finalised," adding further that a huge set of a ship will be put up in YRF during the next couple of months where the major scenes on board will be canned.
