With a change in music and style, Karan Johar is set to amaze the audience with a different alt39 Agneepathalt39 altogether, or so he claims

It has been a remake time in Bollywood since long, with severa

l filmmakers trying to grasp the best of films to serve the old wine from a new bottle. And here we have Karan Johar who has made the remake of his fathers hit film of the alt39 90s, alt39 Agneepathalt39. The filmmaker maintains that nothing from the original has been incorporated in the remake, as debutant director Karan Malhotra wanted to make a fresh film altogether. ” The original alt39 Agneepathalt39 was not a commercial success. My father Yash Johar had always expressed a desire to make alt39 Agneepathalt39 once again.

And when Karan Malhotra approached me and narrated his plans for the cult classic revenge drama, I was obviously excited about it. But this movie is not a alt39 remakealt39 in the technical sense, it is more of a tribute to the original revenge drama,” says Karan Johar.

After a family drama like alt39 Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Ghamalt39, Hrithik Roshan will again be seen working with KJos Dharma Productions. Hrithik plays the lead role of Vijay Dinanath Chauhan. And Duggu was of the opinion that a film like alt39 Agneepathalt39 should have loud music and not Karan Johar style of music. Now it seems the filmmaker understands the demand well and has decided to go with the flow.

Karan says, ” Revengeful kind of music does not belong to Dharma Productions.

But this time we needed to bring in alt39 dhan dhana dhanalt39 kind of music which will match the film. I am extremely thrilled to fulfil my fathers long cherished dream. He wanted to make this film in a commercial way.” There is refreshing Ganpati number added to the film which stands apart from the usual KJo kind of tracks.

Apart from the fast paced music, the film will also have Priyanka Chopra oozing out some sex, as the trailers show her in a seductive scene. ” We need some hot and sexy scenes in the movie to make it a commercial success. Hence Priyanka is trying to seduce Hrithik in a sequence. This is an integral part of the film. In fact apart from lovemaking, the sequence also has a meaningful depth to it. You need to watch the film to know what it is all about,” explains KJo.

Experimenting with his look, Rishi Kapoor will be seen in a totally different avatar in alt39 Agneepathalt39. Speaking about Rishi, Karan says, ” This will be for the first time in the career of Rishi Kapoor that he will be seen in a negative role.

But mark my word he has done a wonderful job. Rishi is like family to us but at an initial stage it was not easy to convince him for the role. He went to the extent of giving a look test and only then did he agree to play this character.” There are more twists to Karan Johars alt39 Agneepathalt39. Talks were on that the classic character of Krishnan Iyer MA played by Mithun Chakraborty in the original alt39 Agneepathalt39 has been changed to a eunuch in the remake. When questioned, Karan keeps mum for a while but he immediately adds, ” That is not true.

But yes, there is an important character as you mentioned. To find out more about it, you will have to watch the movie.” Well then Karan, we are all eager to watch alt39 Agneepathalt39 with a difference as it releases on January 13, 2012.
