Hrithik Roshan and Priyanka Chopra are all set to explode into the cinema halls later this month with their upcoming action flick ‘Agneepath’. Remake of the classic Amitabh Bachchan-Danny Denzogpa starrer super hit, this revenge-themed film revolves around the beefy Hrithik (who steps into the shoes of the legendary character of Vijay Deenanath Chauhan) and his adversary Sanjay Dutt (who has tonsured his head & eyebrows to reprise the menacingly villainous Kancha Cheena). Priyanka, however, has a pivotal role to play as well.
However, both Hrithik and Priyanka have recently had to pay for their fall-out with actor Salman Khan. Salman, the lead anchor of ‘Bigg Boss’, is rumored to have played the major role in keeping the ‘Agneepath’ duo out of the show thus hampering their promotional plans. Grapevine is rife that Salman was the reason why Hrithik-Priyanka couldn’t use the reality show to advertise for their much-awaited movie.
Priyanka, apparently, lost favor with Salman after she refused to star in his ‘Mr. and Mrs. Khanna’! Since then, Piggy-Sallu couple hasn’t been seen together on the big screen. They have also maintained a safe distance off screen as well. Meanwhile, Hrithik’s spat with Salman is well known in the B-town. Salman’s non-generous, spiteful remark on Hrithik’s ‘Guzaarish’ hadn’t gone down well with the star Roshan who lashed back at the ‘Dabangg’ Khan. Since then, the two hunks have haven’t been in good terms.
Meanwhile, Hrithik has gone on air to remark that there’s no ill-feeling between him and Salman. But we can say that the smoke is still thick from that fiery Twitter spat. For the ‘Bigg Boss’ promotional episode, Salman chose to welcome Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor (instead of Hrithik-Priyanka) for marketing their upcoming ‘Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu’.
While such star-wars are nothing new in our scandalous tinsel town, this one seems to have hit the ‘Agneepath’ stars hard on their chins. The one-time chocolate boy Salman definitely tastes more like a bitter chocolate to Hrithik and Priyanka these days.
