New Delhi: Karan Johar’s new age remake of “Agneepath” will release on Lohri – Jan 13, 2012 – producer Karan Johar has revealed.
“AGNEEPATH releases on January 13th, 2012….,” Johar posted on Twitter.
The 1990 original featured megastar Amitabh Bachchan in the lead. The new version has the hunky Hrithik Roshan and the versatile Priyanka Chopra in the leads.
The release date also happens to be close to Hrithik’s 38th birthday, which will fall Jan 10.
The first look of the movie has Hrithik showing off his toned muscles in a red vest, a pair of jeans and a bandana, which reads “Govinda Mahautsav”. He is seen running with an intense emotion on his face, while the background suggests Janmashtami celebrations, with a lot of red coloured water splashing all across.
The movie is being directed by debutant Karan Malhotra. Johar earlier hinted that viewers can expect “unparalleled intensity” between Hrithik and Priyanka in the love story.
