Hrithik Roshan, who is riding high on the huge success of his latest film Super 30 (2019), is yet to confirm his next project. Though he has been offered several scripts in the past few weeks and his name has been linked to several films, there is no official word on his next movie.

The actor was, reportedly, going through four scripts, excluding father Rakesh Roshan’s much-awaited superhero flick Krrish 4. Filmmaker Rajkumar Gupta, whose last directorial India’s Most Wanted (2019) failed to draw audiences to theatres, had also approached Roshan for his next titled Black Tiger. However, the actor has opted out of the project.

Black Tiger is reportedly based on Indian RAW agent Ravindra Kaushik. Junior Roshan has been advised against doing an espionage thriller because there are too many spy stories coming up these days.

“The issue with the film offered by Rajkumar Gupta was not that it was just about a spy. It does not have a great ending, because Ravindra Kaushik did not meet a good end. Hrithik’s friends told him to do stuff that was a lot more commercial in nature, and they needed a lot of songs and dance from their superstar buddy,” a source informs an Indian daily.

Moreover, Salman Khan’s blockbuster film Ek Tha Tiger (2012) was also loosely based on Ravindra Kaushik’s life story. His family had even asked for credits in the film. John Abraham’s film Romeo Akbar Walter (2019), which hit the marquee earlier this year, too revolved around stories similar.

There are reports that Farah Khan has signed Hrithik Roshan in his next film, rumoured to be an official remake of the 1982 film Satte Pe Satta. However, neither the filmmaker nor the actor has confirmed anything.

Meanwhile, the actor is looking forward to the release of Yash Raj Films’ action entertainer War with Tiger Shroff and Vaani Kapoor. The much-awaited film is slated to buzz into theatres on 2nd October, 2019.
