Rishi Kapoor inspires Hrithik

Mumbai: Ever since he started shooting for `Agneepath`, Hrithik Roshan can not stop gushing about veteran Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor, with whom he is working for the first time.

Hrithik says he was amazed by Rishi`s energy while doing action sequences in the film.

"Chintu uncle has always been a source of inspiration for me…not just me but I think every Indian actor has somewhere tried to emulate the vortex of energy that he is," says Roshan junior.

"I was amazed at his level of strength and fitness while shooting the action sequences. He took some bad falls, was bruised and scarred, but he just kept going!"

`Agneepath`, produced by Karan Johar, is the remake of the Amitabh Bachchan-starrer, and is directed by debutant Karan Malhotra.

National award-winning music composers from Marathi film industry, Ajay and Atul Gogawale, are the music directors of this film. Sanjay Dutt and Priyanka Chopra are the other leading members of the cast.
