But now the reports about Spanish actress Barbara Mori’s return to India are doing the rounds, the sizzling hot Mexican actress who had almost broken the marriage of Hrithik-Susanne during her earlier visit to the country, is going to be back in India and will be put up in a suburban guest house by Hrithik Roshan.
Barbara Mori, the sexy siren who features opposite Hrithik Roshan in his upcoming film ‘Kites’, has done some hot steamy scenes with him in the project. It was during the filming of those sequences that they were said to have become close to each other. However, sources say that Hrithik Roshan invited Barbara Mori this time to save her from the ongoing swine flu scare in her native country Mexico. The Latino beauty did not disappoint Duggu and arrived in the city with her entourage.
Ostensibly, Barbara Mori will start rehearsing her dance steps for the remaining schedule of the upcoming film ‘Kites’ during her stay in Mumbai and will also complete her patchwork for the film, which is needed badly. Barbara Mori plays a salsa student in the film, while Hrithik is her teacher who falls for her innocent charms.
The buzz doing the rounds in the industry is that there is a sea of difference in Barbara’s status this time after her return from Mexico. Earlier, she was just an actress starring opposite Hrithik in ‘Kites’ and was not treated by media in any special way.
But, after Susanne Khan walked out of Hrithik’s house, Barbara Mori has become hot property and everybody wants to have her photograph on the cover. In fact, the lady has become busy with negotiating deals for endorsements and posing for magazine covers after her alleged affair with Hrithik Roshan.
Sources reveal that Hrithik is not only concerned about Barbara but is looking after her kid brother also. Kintaro (Mori’s Brother) has been in Mumbai to cut an album with T-series. Hrithik has taken the initiative to help Kintaro find his feet in Mumbai and has put him up in a rented house at Andheri. He also introduced the budding singer to Bhushan Kumar of T-Series, said the source.
Rakesh Roshan, who is aghast at the gossip regarding his family members, quelled the rumours. He said, “It started with all these nasty rumours about Hrithik-Sussane and now, like termites, the attack has gone deeper into Hrithik’s relationship with me. Both Hrithik and I know the truth. As long as we’re one family, no one can cause any rift among us. These are baseless rumours. And why should we be answerable to people about what happens in our home? Are we supposed to let people know when there’s renovation work, when new furniture is made and when we buy a new television set? Aren’t these routine happenings? Why should we clear the air when everything is clear in our home?”
Trying hard not to sound affected by the loose talk, Rakesh stressed that such rumours were an attempt to malign the Roshans and affect their market credibility. He said, “Our audience, friends and fans know Hrithik and I are inseparable. Our family will always lives under one roof. Nothing can change that. We’re bonded for life. I laugh at such juvenile attempts to make mischief in our lives. Nothing can split my family. Now that Hrithik and Sussane are back home, the matter ends there.”
When asked about Barbara’s return to Mumbai on Hrithik’s invitation Papa Roshan cleared the air “Barbara has finished all her work for Kites. We don’t need her for the film until the global premieres of Kites begin this Diwali. So there is absolutely no question of her coming down to Mumbai for Kites. We wish her well wherever she is,” said Rakesh Roshan.
Sources swear that tensions abound between father Rakesh Roshan and beta Hrithik and that is the main reason why the actor hasn't returned home, even after he patched things up with his wife Sussanne.
A Juhu source says, "The father and son had a rift. It started with Hrithik's closeness to Barbari Mori, following which Sussanne left the house. Roshan Sr loves his daughter-in-law and made it clear that he was on her side and that he'd have nothing to do with Hrithik if he didn't come to his senses. The tension which was apparent on the sets soon percolated to the sets."
