The movie is supposedly a fantasy adventure one and is a remake of the Malayalam film, ‘Pulimurugan’ which had superstar Mohanlal as the lead. Unlike Bhansali’s other films, this movie will not be about kings, queens and princesses, but about tackling societal problems like smuggling and drug addiction.
In the original movie, Mohanlal played a warrior-hunter who tries to save his village from man-eating leopards. According to reports, Bhansali had approached Hrithik Roshan to play the protagonist in the film. But according to sources, Hrithik has rejected the offer and apparently has not even stated a reason for the same.
Bhansali apparently is now looking out for someone else to play the lead for his film.
