Why was Hrithik Roshan cast in Lakshya?

Earlier, in an interview with Rediff, Farhan revealed why he chose to cast Hrithik in the lead role. "The script demanded who the actor should be. My dad [Javed Akhtar], Ritesh [Sidhwani, producer], and I agreed on Hrithik because he has the physique and the looks that suit the character. Physicality was important because he should look like he is in the army. He should be able to convey physical as well as mental toughness," he said.
