Rumour mills are abuzz with the news that Hrithik Roshan politely turned down the offer due to date issues. Though the Bollywood star is only busy with his forthcoming movie Krrish 3, he could not allot the bulk dates demanded by Shankar, who has not delivered a flop in his close to two decade career.
Shankar has now offered the same to Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu, who is likely to star in the Hindi version of I. The actor has met the filmmaker last week and talks are on. However, it has to be noted that Mahesh Babu has been offered the Bollywood version, as Vikram's movie is being dubbed in Telugu titled Manohardu.
Shankar's I is a romantic-thriller produced by Aascar Ravichandran. Oscar Award winner AR Rahman is composing the music and PC Sriram will handle the camera. The interesting part of the story is that some of the well-known technicians from Hollywood are working in this project.
