Madhuri out, Hrithik in for State campaign?
Representatives from the Mantralaya paid the actor a hush-hush visit, asking him to be the brand ambassador for Maharashtra

While it is true heavy security has been deployed to keep Hrithik Roshan’s fresh new look in Krrish 3 strictly under wraps, Tuesday turned out to be a bit of an over indulgence. People were in for a surprise, what with nearly double the armed security cordoning off the shooting area at Filmistan, where Hrithik is shooting along with Kangna Ranaut.
However, it wasn’t just Hrithik’s appearance they were guarding. Rather, the kadak bandobust was in lieu of the few ministers who came down to meet Roshan, to discuss the proposal to make him the brand ambassador for the state of Maharashtra.
A source close to the film told Mirror, “Three ministers from Mantralaya had come down. They were made to wait in Hrithik’s vanity van for 20-odd minutes since the actor was busy shooting a scene and could not abandon it in between. As soon as he got done, they had a meeting at about 4pm that went on for around 30 minutes.”
The source further revealed, “Everything has been finalised. Hrithik just needs to have a final meeting with the main person in charge. That will take place as soon as this schedule is completed in three to four days.”
While both Hrithik and Rakesh Roshan remained unavailable for comment, Hrithik’s agency Carving Dreams that is looking into the deal, simply said, “We will let you know at the right time.”
We hear Madhuri Dixit was approached earlier for the prestigious role of brand ambassador but she demanded a whopping fee of nearly Rs 9 crore. Sachin Tendulkar, who was a contender as well, couldn’t take on the role due to his cricket commitments.
