S Shankar is reportedly working on a sci-fi thriller.
Media reports mentioned that Shankar had already narrated the script to Hrithik Roshan and the superstar is on board for the project.
However, it is unclear whether this project will be a movie or series.
According to another media report, irrespective of what the project turns out to be, a web streaming giant has already shown a keen interest in telecasting it.
This means that if the web stream giant does pick up Shankar’s project, it will mark Hrithik Roshan’s debut in the web space.
A source revealed to an Indian daily:
“Once the final draft is ready, Shankar will begin his recce for the shoot. The project is likely to roll in October and will be shot in a South-east Asian island.”
The team is currently in the casting process.
“Shankar has always been keen to work with Hrithik Roshan and has been trying since the last four years but somehow it has never worked out.
Shankar feels with Hrithik’s good looks, great physique and superb dancing skills, he can do justice to the kind of scripts that Shankar has,” a trade source told an Indian tabloid.
After the success of 2.0, S Shankar is all set to helm Indian 2, which is the sequel to his hit 1996 crime thriller Indian, with Kamal Haasan as the lead actor.
With regards to Hrithik, he will be next seen in Super 30 opposite Mrunal Thakur.
