Sanjay Dutts look in Agneepath remake revealed

Mumbai: Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt`s look in the much-awaited remake of `Agneepath` was revealed on his 52nd birthday on Friday.

"First Look of Sanjay Dutt in Agneepath! Await your comments," filmmaker Karan Johar said on micro-blogging site twitter.

Johar posted a link of Agneepath`s facebook page on twitter, which shows the `Khalnayak`s` shaved head, besides his bulked up physique and tattoos over his arms.

Directed by Johar`s former assistant, Karan Malhotra, `Agneepath`, a remake of the 1990 Hindi film is reportedly radically different from the original film.

The original `Agneepath`, directed by Mukul Anand, starred Amitabh, Mithun Chakraborty, Madhavi, Rohini Hattangadi and Danny Denzongpa; and was produced by Yash Johar, Karan`s late father.

Though the film failed commercially at the box-office, Bachchan`s performance was praised. Bachchan and Chakraborty received National award for Best Actor and Filmfare Best Supporting Actor award respectively.

The remake version will see Hrithik reprising Bachchan`s iconic role of Vijay Deenanath Chauhan, while Priyanka Chopra would be the female lead.

The character essayed by Mithun Chakraborty has been totally done away in the remake and the role of villain played by Danny Denzongpa is being essayed by Dutt. Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor will play another negative character.

The remake version hits cinema houses on January 13, 2012.
