Hritik Dumps Karan Johar’s Shoot!

Hritik Dumps Karan Johar’s Shoot!

October 4, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio / Pen Men at Work) : You may call it an ‘idiot box,’ but if you ask Karan Johar, he may say something like ‘Sautan!’

Why?

Hritik, in the lead role of Karan Johar’s ‘Agneepath,’ gave it all to ‘Just Dance’ show on the idiot box the previous day, and was so exhausted the next day that he had nothing left for the shoot of ‘Agneepath’!

Poor Karan had to cancel the shoot!

In older days, it would have been the reverse! Actor of the big screen would have dumped a TV show shoot in a blink of an eye for a film shoot schedule.

Until recently, the A, and even B grade actors of the silver screen in the tinsel town were looking down at the small screen of TV!

No more!

Be it Big B or be it Shah Rukh Khan or Salman Khan, or for that matter, Karan Johar himself, they all love the small screen of TV now! Even Aamir Khan, who has always shunned from any kind of awards show, is now going to host a talk show on TV.

And, Hritik Roshan went even one step ahead! He cancelled his movie shoot because he was too tired from the shoot of his TV show ‘Just Dance’ the previous day!

Hritik is a judge on the dance-reality show ‘Just Dance’ along with choreographers Vaibhavi Merchant and Farah Khan. He was so exhausted shooting of the grand finale episode of the show that he did not have any stamina left to fulfill his commitment for the shoot of Karan Johar’s remake of ‘Agneepath’ the next day.

The Shoot was scheduled at Babulnath temple and the unit had made all the arrangement for the same, taking permits from the temple authorities and police and all nine yards that go with a shoot in a well-known public place like Babulnath temple during Navratri/Durga pooja festival. But Hritik called off at the last minute and the unit had to cancel the shoot.

Can you imagine Karan Johar taking Hritik Roshan on this on ’Coffee with Karan’?

Wouldn’t it be interesting?
