His debut went quite unnoticed for the Dharmendra home production Socha Na Tha which was the launching van for the talented Abhay Deol however, now Imitiaz Ali is anything but unnoticed. His last release Jab We Met proved to be a life changing film in not only his career but also a career defining moment for his lead actress Kareena Kapoor. Today he’s regarded a must-work-with director on every actor’s dream project list and Hrithik Roshan is one actor who can safely tick off Imitiaz Ali from his list.
Eros Enternational is are the co-producer of Imitiaz’s almost finished project titled Love Aaj Kal starring Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone and upon completion of this project Eros has offered the director another chance to work with them.
The talented maker has an interesting script in mind, and this time around he has his eyes set on Hrithik Roshan for the lead role. Incidentally the director has approached the actor and recited the narration for which Hrithik’s response was very encouraging. The actor not only loved the concept but also has informally come on board the venture and has given the go ahead for formal paper work to be drawn up!
From Abhay and Shahid to Saif and now Hrithik, Imitiaz Ali may not be on a conscious mission to attain the best but sure is heading that way!
