The action drama stars Hrithik Roshan as Vijay Dinanath Chauhan originally played by megastar Amitabh Bachchan in Chandan Barot’s directorial venture of the same name.
“Audiences are looking forward to Hrithik’s portrayal of the legendary Vijay Dinanath Chouhan while Sanjay Dutt’s villainous look has stirred much curiosity. The promos have evoked very good reactions and we are anticipating a very encouraging response to the film,” Kapadia added.
