Prabhu Deva is being hailed as the man with the golden touch. He is the one director whose ‘Wanted’ and ‘Rowdy Rathore’ entered into the 100-crore club. Besides, Kumar Taurani has also signed Prabhu for two films at a time. Apart from these, Prabhu also has plans to start a project each with Ajay Devgn and Shahid Kapoor. Significantly, he is planning the sequel to ‘Rowdy Rathore’. Don’t forget that he charges a hefty fee of Rs. 30 million a film along with a share of the profits. While the directors are important, as many actors have to wait for years to be cast in a director or a filmmaker’s movie, there are very few actors who make the director/ filmmaker wait for them. Hrithik Roshan is one of them. Film producers likes of Karan Johar, Imtiaz Ali, Sajid Nadiadwala and Shekhar Kapur have all been waiting for Hrithik Roshan to get to work on their projects. It’s not that Hrithik is doing it intentionally; he has been caught up with the shoot schedule of ‘Krrish 3’.

At the time of the ‘Agneepath’ release, Karan had announced that he would be making a film based on Amish Tripathi’s bestseller, Immortals of Meluha. Although no names were announced, it was believed that Hrithik would star in the film. In the meantime, Sajid Nadiadwala and Imtiaz Ali had also spoken to Hrithik about working in their next projects. Since Hrithik never works on more than one film at a time and ‘Krrish 3’ isn’t yet over, wonder if Karan, Sajid or Shekhar Kapur would get Hrithik to act in their movies. Shekhar who was supposed to direct ‘Paani’ with Duggu has meanwhile moved on to other Hollywood projects, it is learnt.
