Working with director Sanjay Leela Bhansali is a dream come true for several actors. And his creativity has always shined with each film of his- Be it Devdas (2002) or Padmaavat (2018). His work has always amazed us for years. Be it his romantic drama ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ or a period drama like ‘Baajrirao Mastani’ or ‘Padmaavat’, Bhansali’s work has always stood out from others.
The reports suggest that Bhansali had offered his next film to Hrithik Roshan who has apparently refused the offer. The film was supposed to be of genre fantasy adventure and the remake of Malayalam film ‘Pulimurugan’. It is based on the societal problems like drug addiction and smuggling.
The reports suggest that Bhansali is now looking for another actor. However, Hrithik took no time to speak on these reports. He took to his Official Instagram handle and called it a ‘Fake Journalism’. He tweeted, “False journalism. Or an honest mistake. Who will ever know. stay cool tho.”

Seems like Hrithik is still on-board Bhansali’s project. They both have previously worked together in ‘Guzaarish’.
Hrithik is currently working on ‘Super 30’ which is a real-life story. Super 30 is actually a program founded by a man named Anand Kumar in Patna. The program selects 30 talented students from economically backward class every year. Anand then trains him for JEE, which is the entrance exam for IIT.
The film is directed by Vikas Bahl. It is being produced by Anurag Kashyap, Sajid Nadiadwala, and Reliance Entertainment.
Talking about Sanjay Leela Bhansali, he magnum opus ‘Padmaavat’ earlier this year which was a blockbuster on the box-office. The film collected over Rs 300 crores.
