Hrithik Roshan is all set to make his Hollywood debut if things go as planned, reported Hindustan Times. The actor may play co-lead in an upcoming spy film and has even auditioned for the role, according to the outlet.
But this may not be as much of a surprise for his fans, considering Roshan had hinted at his forthcoming ventures when he signed up with a US agency called Gersh earlier this year. It is now being said that he is in talks to star in a multi-million project that is backed by a reputed production house.
While the details are sketchy at present, a Mid-Day report quoted a source as saying that the Bollywood heartthrob taped his audition and sent it to the US. “As is customary in Los Angeles, Hrithik Roshan’s team was given details of his role in the film and the scenes that he had to tape. He sent his audition to the studio two weeks ago,” they shared.
While discussions are at a nascent stage, if all goes well, Roshan will kick off the project after completing his shoot for Krrish 4, the report added. His team is also tight-lipped on the developments, claiming “they have no information” on the matter.
Earlier, when the Kaabil actor was first signed by Gersh, his manager Amrita Sen had told Deadline, “Roshan has always been an envelope pusher. For the last 20 years, he has been helping to drive Indian cinema into new genres, new narrative concepts and ever-more sophisticated storytelling.”
She went on to assure readers that the superstar is thrilled by the demand for global content. “He is excited about the fact that the market for global content, which features characters and stories from other parts of the world, couldn’t be stronger than it is today. With his leadership, our goal is to continue to put India in a front and central position on the path towards globalisation and diversity and help integrate creators into new markets that were previously not available to them.”
Sen went on to promise that Roshan’s partnership with Gersh will be taking his ambitious vision around the world.
As for Krrish 4, the actor is set to play four characters in the upcoming installment of the superhero film, reported Pinkvilla. A source had earlier informed, "Krrish 4 is being mounted on a lavish scale. It will be a visual spectacle. The story has been locked and this time, it won't just be a double role for Hrithik Roshan but a quadruple one.”
They added, “While Krrish stays, they will also bring back Rohit from the land of dead and Jadoo from Koi Mil Gaya. It's unknown how Rakesh Roshan plans on incorporating the other two Hrithiks but it's a full on Hrithik show. The role of the leading lady is extremely powerful too this time."
