Its said that the Bollywood heartthrob, is having the time of his life, shooting for ‘Kites’ in exotic locales like Las Vegas, Los Angeles and New Mexico. But daddy Rakesh Roshan, the producer and now also the director of the flick, is having sweaty palms because of his son’s raunchy antics. Hrithik, hitherto known to be a perfect gentleman and a wonderful husband is reportedly giving in to the allure of co-actress Barbara Mori.
The lovely shooting locales, known for their uninhibited air and sheer abandon when it comes to catering the wildest fantasies, are having a great effect on Hrithik’s mind, and heart as well! Buzz has it that the incredibly sensual Latin beauty Barbara Mori, who also happens to be Hrithik’s mistress in the movie, has bewitched the Bollywood hottest hunk in real life.
Hrithik is enjoying the umpteen ‘roll-in-the-hay’ scenes in the movie with Barbara so much, that he is carrying off some of it off screen, too! The news has already reached and worried papa Rakesh, and he has taken over the responsibility to watch over his son. Rakesh is even gathering around his family and friends for help in getting his son back to old good-boy tracks.
It is believed that Papa Roshan was extremely upset with Hrithik’s off-screen bonding with his Brazilian co-actress and decided to bring his family together and got Suzanne and the kids to fly down to the States. News of Hrithik’s closeness with the actress was making the rounds in Mumbai too and apparently, Rakesh Roshan who was annoyed by the development, suggested that family joins Hrithik. It is also believed that Suzanne and her boys surprised Hrithik who had arranged a special dinner in his hotel suite for the cast and crew.
It’s said that Rakesh Roshan has decided to direct the movie himself. Ex-director Anurag Basu is miffed for being manhandled out of the project so unceremoniously, but Rakesh is seriously concerned about Hrithik’s (now no more!) happy-family life.
Even though the original Director of Photography Bobby Singh has been replaced by Ayananka Bose, the Roshans claim there was no malice involved in the changeover. Speaking to from Las Vegas, Hrithik said, “It was an amicable split. Now, Ayananka Bose is the DOP.”
According to a reliable source, "Bobby and Anurag are friends, besides being a great team. Basu appreciates Bobby's work and gives him a free hand. But Roshan had his own ideas of how the film should look. He didn't agree with Bobby's style and would interfere in camera angles and light shots etc. Initially Bobby kept quiet as Rakesh is a senior filmmaker and creative differences happen on every set. But as the days went by, Bobby felt his work as a cinematographer was increasingly getting undermined."
The differences between Bobby and Roshan were affecting everyone on the set. Things finally came to a head on the day when Roshan Sr shouted at Bobby in front of the whole cast ad crew. The source says, "Bobby was fixing his camera for a particular shot when Rakesh came up to him and started firing him loudly.”
