Bollywood grapevine is abuzz that actor Hrithik Roshan will be portraying the lead role in the Hindi remake of Tamil blockbuster Kaththi. If rumours are to be believed, the Kaabil actor will be replacing Akshay Kumar, who was earlier tipped to star in the film.

According to reports, a team from the production banner recently met Hrithik and discussed several scripts, including director AR Murugadoss’s 2014 Tamil hit, which had Ilayathalapathy Vijay in the lead. The actor, however, is yet to give his nod for the project.

Earlier, Akshay was expected to play the lead role in the remake film. When asked if he is doing the film, the Jolly LLB 2 star said in an interview, “I think so, adding that the project was still in talks.” Before that, even Salman Khan was rumoured to be considered by Murugadoss to play the lead in the Hindi remake after a photo of them during a discussion surfaced online. However, nothing got materialised. Interestingly, Akshay and Salman have acted in the Hindi remakes of Murugadoss’s south Indian films – Holiday and Jai Ho, respectively.
