Only a few weeks after unveiling his waxwork in London’s Madame Tussauds, Hrithik Roshan’s high is set to continue. As we reported he is set to start working on the remake of Agneepath in which he will be playing the character of Vijay Dinanath Chauhan which was played by Amitabh Bachchan in the original. Also in the pipeline to release is Zoya Akhtar’s Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. However, the exciting news coming in at the moment is that Roshan is getting ready to make his TV debut as a judge on a forthcoming dance reality show, Just Dance, on Star Plus.
It seems Hrithik is proving on the sets of Just Dance that his time-keeping, determination and hard work is unparalleled. Despite being in pain and on painkillers due to a muscle tear, the actor shot for the show at a 17-hour stretch, starting shooting at 9am on Monday until 2am on Tuesday morning. A source from the sets in Malad revealed that Roshan was extremely mindful of the shoot not being cancelled as this would have amounted in significant financial ruin for the producers, “He didn’t let us cancel the shoot though we offered to do that because we were concerned about his health.”
The first promos of Just Dance are due to be released within the next week and fans should expect the show to air sometime this year. It is also rumoured that Star Plus were extra keen on having the actor on-board and it is thought they offered Roshan the sum of 2 Crore per episode, with 56 episodes in total. If this speculation is true, this will earn the superstar up to 112 Crore – making him the highest paid Hindi cinema export to TV.
We will keep an eye on this so watch this space for more!
