Even a few days back, Hrithik Roshan had been completely written off as an actor after his much awaited film Kites bombed at the box office. With the release of Guzaarish, the actor has more than made up for the flaw. His film is not only a commercial hit, Hrithik Roshan has also completely gave an answer back to the critics speaking against him. Hit or flop, Hrithik Roshan has never had a dearth of fans. But after his touching performance in Guzaarish, he has a very special fan and he is none other than Bollywood co-star and friend Shah Rukh Khan.
According to reports, Shah Rukh Khan was so touched after watching Guzaarish that he immediately called up Hrithik to congratulate him on his performance. And since Hrithik’s wife Suzanne Khan was already a part of the group watching Guzaarish at Shah Rukh’s home Mannat, SRK asked Hrithik too, to drop by. All this took place in the late hours of the night, and if reports are to be believed Hrithik Roshan stayed back until 2 am speaking to SRK about his experiences on working as a quadriplegic in Guzaarish.
While Bollywood’s King Khan has gone on air showering praises on Hrithik’s Ethan act, saying that the actor surpassed his own performance as a diseased man in My Name Is Khan, Hrithik Roshan very humbly denied that he was disturbed by Shah Rukh’s call in the middle of the night. Though the actor has been recovering from viral fever, he made it a point to drive down to Mannat, stressing on the fact that it was for Shah Rukh who is not only a great friend but also a very generous human being.
While My Name Is Khan was already a frontrunner in film awards to be held next year, Shah Rukh Khan now has stiff competition from Hrithik Roshan’s Guzaarish.
