Sanjay essays the role of the villain, Kancha. True to his character, the actor looks quite evil in his bald avatar, a silver ring on top of his left ear and a black outfit, with puffed up eyes. The actor also looks quite beefed up, and sports a wicked smile.
The original “Agneepath” featured Amitabh Bachchan as Vijay Deenanath Chauhan, while Danny Dengzongpa essayed the villain’s part.
Now, Hrithik Roshan has been roped in for the lead role in the new film, which is being directed by Johar’s former assistant Karan Malhotra. Hrithik’s look was unveiled much before, through a still which had the 37-year-old wearing a red vest, jeans and a bandana, which read “Govinda Mahautsav”.
Actress Priyanka Chopra will be seen as the female lead in the movie, set for release Jan 13, 2012.
