Vishal Bhardwaj is remaking the Martin Scorsese-directed multiple Oscar-winning thriller The Departed in Hindi. Sources said Vishal has signed on Hrithik Roshan to play the role that Leonardo DiCaprio essayed in the Hollywood film. Scorsese’s movie saw Leo and Matt Damon play characters who go undercover to infiltrate the Irish mafia and the Massachusetts State Police respectively.
DNA has learnt that Vishal’s remake will see the plot set in Mumbai as two people — one from the underbelly and one from the police department — infiltrate the other group for a final showdown.
A source close to the project said, “Vishal has got Hrithik’s dates from June after the actor finishes shooting for Sanjay Bhansali’s Guzaarish. So far only he has been cast. He plays Leo’s role and so he will have to hone his martial arts skills and gun-totting abilities by taking special classes from professionals. Moreover, Hrithik is expected to be fully fit by then to pull off the risky stunts (he is suffering from a knee injury and has been advised by doctors not to risk his body by performing risky stunts).” Sources: DNA Newpaper
