Hrithik Roshan has been in the industry for the past two decades and he has starred in only two remakes Bang Bang (remake of Knight & Day) and Agneepath (remake of 1991 release with the same name). There have been reports of him being approached for the remake of Satte Pe Satta and The Burning Train. However, it is said that the actor is not keen on starring in remakes.

A source told an entertainment portal, “All the filmmakers who are close to Duggu (Hrithik) know he doesn’t want to do remakes. He did one remake Agneepath. That’s it. After that, it’s a firm no to all remakes.”

Talking about rejecting Satte Pe Satta remake, the source said, “And that was to be directed by a close family friend Farah Khan. Duggu went to lunch at Farah’s place when she invited him. Farah made the offer. Duggu was too polite to say an outright no. It took quite a while for Farah to get the message. No remakes!”

Clearing the air about the reports of Hrithik Roshan being approached for The Burning Train remake, the source stated, “Duggu hasn’t even been approached for The Burning Train. Wasn’t the original a big flop? And wasn’t it a two-hero project featuring Dharmendra and Vinod Khanna? Why would Duggu do a two-hero film? Who does two-hero films these days? Unless it’s Yash Raj’s War where Duggu and Tiger are like two halves of one whole, can’t be made without both.”

Meanwhile, Hrithik currently has no movies in his kitty. The actor was last seen on the big screen in War which became the highest-grossing film of 2019. Reportedly, the actor is now keen on doing a Hollywood film.
