Is Hrithik taking a big risk?

Hrithik had to be cajoled by Karan Johar to accept the role of Vijay Deenanath Chauhan in Agneepath. Hrithik's contention was that he doesn't like working in remakes, especially if it's a classic and he was expected to step into the shoes of Big B. Why remake a classic and spoil it's sanctity was his question?

Does Hrithik really hate remakes or is he scared to take a risk? A quick look at his filmography will prove that Duggu is better at romantic roles than the action ones. It's been a while since Hrithik has given a big hit, even in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara the credits had to be shared. Taking on a role which was made iconic by Amitabh Bachchan is a big task. Not only will there be inevitable comparison between the two but Hrithik has to deliver as the angry young man which is clearly not his comfort zone.

At this point in Hrithik's career is it a smart move? Or is it too big a risk?
