- 20th Century Fox approached Hrithik for the Kaabil remake
- Director Sanjay Gupta confirmed the news in an interview
- Hrithik is yet to discuss the proposal with his filmmaker father
According to mid-day, Hrithik was busy with his New York schedule when the Hollywood studio got in touch with him. Once back, he is expected to share the details with his filmmaker father Rakesh Roshan, who produced Kaabil. "Before he jetted off to New York, Hrithik was pleasantly surprised to get a call from Tomas, who wanted to buy the remake rights of Kaabil. They feel the film is a pure entertainer and has all the ingredients for a great Hollywood film. Hrithik will discuss the matter with his father when he is back." Hrithik is currently in New York - pictures of the actor with ex-wife Sussanne Khan in the Big Apple have been shared on Instagram.
Meanwhile, this is what Rakesh Roshan told mid-day: "The screenplay was hard-hitting, and the drama, gripping. It would make for a wonderful Hollywood adaptation, given that it has all the necessary emotions. It struck gold at the box-office because it was about a visually-impaired lover seeking revenge." Kaabil stars Hrithik and Yami Gautam as a young couple, who are visually impaired.
