He is, of course, aware of all that has been said and written about his relationship with Mori. All fuelled by the fact that they have done some steamy scenes onscreen and he’s been spending an inordinate amount of time with her off screen. One rumour had it that Hrithik skipped the Filmfare Awards (where he was judged Best Actor) after a row with Susanne over Mori. He, naturally, made himself unavailable for comment, but an Hrithik loyalist defended the star vaguely, “There’s no husband in Bollywood who’s more faithful to his wife than Hrithik. These rumours were started by one of his former leading ladies.”
The decision to take two weeks off before he starts work on Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film with Aishwarya Bachchan was apparently taken by the Roshan household to allow Hrithik, Sussanne and the children some time to bond. Apparently, his mother’s heart condition has made the men of the house exceptionally concerned about maintaining domestic harmony. “Hrithik will do nothing to hurt his mother or wife,” said a source, adding that bechari Mori was friendlier with Sussanne than Hrithik. “They went out shopping, attended events together, and there was no sign of stress between them at all.”
The news is that Hrithik requested Sanjay Leela Bhansali to push the shoot of his untitled film with Aishwarya little ahead so that he could go for holidays with his family. For a director who doesn’t take too kindly to interference, Sanjay certainly seems to have mellowed quite down a bit. The filmmaker was all set to start his next film, from the second week of April but Bhansali came up with an idea which suited both the parties.
Roshan Jr wants to move on to his next project only once he’s totally convinced and through with his home production, Kites, directed by Anurag Basu. The film also shows cases Kangana Ranaut and Barbara Mori. So Bhansali and Roshan J have come to a conclusion that the shooting will start as per schedule — which is mid-next month. But Roshan will join the team only once he’s free from his home production and had some quality time with his wife.
A source close to Roshan J also informs that the actor is excited about his film with Bhansali for two reasons — one, it’s the first time he’s making a movie with the Devdas director. Second, it’s the third movie in which he’s co-starring with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
The duo had earlier worked together in Dhoom 2 and Jodhaa Akbar. Incidentally, this untitled project also marks a hat trick for Bhansali and Rai Bachchan after Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Devdas.
Meanwhile to keep the dearest wife happy the superhero of bollywood, has become the latest celebrity to join the tattoo bandwagon by getting Solomon’s seal tattooed on his forearm. Sameer Patange who has done it for several other celebrities too, made the tattoo on Hrithik and Susanne’s forearm. According to sources, Hrithik’s six-point star, which is also referred to as the Creator’s star, symbolizes the interaction of the divine with the mortal. Hrithik’s father Rakesh Roshan, too, has a similar tattoo on his arm.
