Karan Johar is filming AGNEEPATH at lightning speed. Without making any noise whatsoever, in fact. Though director Karan Malhotra began filming only recently, the film, with Hrithik Roshan reprising Amitabh Bachchan's role, is already 50% complete. "Another major schedule of the film in Daman and we will be through with the principal shooting of the film," Karan informs me. 


Meanwhile, there are whispers that Karan has sold the distribution rights of AGNEEPATH and STUDENT OF THE YEAR to a Hollywood studio for an astronomical sum. "Not true! In the first place, I don't wish to get into the co-production deal with anyone for AGNEEPATH. This one's special; it was produced by my father and I would like Dharma to retain its rights exclusively," Karan states. 


What about S.O.T.Y.? "Again, the news is unfounded. I haven't inked the deal with any studio yet," he adds. Karan plans to release AGNEEPATH this year. In fact, like Salman and SRK, who will have two releases this year, Hrithik too will have two releases this year, starting with ZINDAGI NA MILEGI DOBARA on 8 July, followed by AGNEEPATH in the final weeks of 2011. "We haven't zeroed on any date yet, but we should release it between RA.ONE [Diwali] and DON 2 [Christmas]," Karan says.
