For an actor who just about manages to make a film a year, and doesn’t chase publicity, Hrithik Roshan gets talked about a lot. For his new, wild-curls hairstyle, his steamy love scenes in the hugely-hyped Kites, his alleged affair with Kites co-star Barbara Mori, and the “termites” that saw him and wife Suzanne move temporarily into a five-star hotel last year. Papa Rakesh Roshan stoutly denied any discord whatsoever in the Roshan household, much less over the Mori rumours, but it didn’t help and the rumours still fly higher than the kites at Sankranti. No doubt, they will reach a crescendo when the movie finally puts us out of our misery and releases in May.
PS: In case you didn’t notice, Hrithik’s acting drew no attention at all. Yahi hai Bollywood, meri jaan.
