Hrithik Roshan‘s Rs 35 crore, three-film deal with Adlabs seems to be finally on the road. What’s interesting is that he will be working with Ram Gopal Varma for the first time, in one of the three films. Now, here’s an unlikely combination: a dancing superhero teaming up with a filmmaker who likes to venture off the beaten track every now and then. However, reports says that Adlabs has signed Ram Gopal Varma to make an action film with Hrithik. Incidentally, John Matthew Mathan will be directing a film with the actor too.
A source from Adlabs says, “Yes, Hrithik’s three-film deal is finally on. Adlabs had an old understanding with John Matthan for his film Shikhar and that’s why he has been signed for a film with Hrithik. The second film will be directed by Ram Gopal Varma and he has been paid a huge amount to direct the film. Ramu is currently working on the script. It’s supposed to be a stylish action film, based in Afghanistan.”
Hrithik’s look in the film will apparently be somewhat like Rambo and the tentative title of the film is Aryan. The budget of the film will be approximately Rs 40 crore.
Adds our source, “Hrithik is busy with Jodhaa Akbar right now. Once that’s done, he will take a final call on which film he wants to start first, Ramu’s or Mathan’s, in August.”
While Ramu remained unavailable for comment, Hrithik Roshan’s secretary, Ashok Vashodia, only said, “Nothing has been finalised yet.”
